His life is a living legacy. Now 94, Doc Garland Granger has become an icon of the steel industry, successful hotelier, restaurateur, real estate developer, highly respected member of the Masonic Temple, yachtsman, philanthropist, philosopher, and family man. Capturing his wonderful life in words, author Susan D. Brandenburg pens a compelling biography in Sharecropper's Son.
Born in a sharecropper’s shack, Doc spent his childhood laboring in the cotton fields and tobacco patches of Robeson County, North Carolina. When, at age 17, he left the farm and set out to make his fortune, Doc carried with him enduring faith in God, indomitable entrepreneurial spirit, and innate “tobacco patch wisdom.” With only a fourth-grade education, the tall, handsome, sinewy son of a sharecropper was destined to become a man who has helped make the American Dream a reality.
Sharecropper’s Son is the inspiring story of a man who achieved success despite facing insurmountable challenges. Through this book, readers will know a man whose legacy of love is laced with laughter; whose homespun intelligence is like money in the bank; and whose heart has always been big enough to forgive, forge ahead, and live life to the fullest.
