A West Kentucky boy from a well-to-do family experiences the trauma of the Great Depression, followed by the devastating flood of 1937. His family is thrown into poverty. His story of this tragedy and what followed is a fascinating journey through his challenges in childhood work, education, sports, military service, love, faith, business, politics, religion, family, and world travel. At the age of eighty-seven, he looked back on the many key events of his life and created an impressive autobiography--The Crossroads of a Wonderful Life: Treasured and Not-So-Treasured Memories, which he published and shared with family and friends. It was well received and now is offered to a larger audience. Witness the ups and downs of his and his family's lives--a remarkable replay of a business career that included noteworthy progress in a major company, almost unbelievable corporate intrigue, spying on the competition, CEO confrontation and early retirement, a new and exciting CEO role, public service, and his lifelong commitment to his Christian faith. Enjoy the wonderful travels and photos of his family and friends. Finally, he incorporates messages learned through life about his ideas for career selection by the young graduate, points for the new executive to consider, a financial plan for life, and evidences of his lifelong commitment to his Christian faith--all of this enhanced by a revealing collection of photographs.On many visits back and forth they helped us come to know and love our early roots. ... looking for the lowest prices and this was really beginning to pinch American footwear and apparel manufacturers. ... competors but our mandatory minimum wage laws created a more than 10-1 cost of labor per hour disadvantage withanbsp;...
