Allentown, Pa. (PRWEB) November 03, 2014
In “107 Main Street” (published by Xlibris) author Ross Davidson shows how he grew up poor but not disadvantaged and how hard work and determination allowed him to overcome life’s many obstacles.
Davidson’s book is based on the story of his precarious life growing up in privation. His daily struggles created indelible memories. This is a strange, highly unusual and complex story of a boy born into poverty during the Great Depression. The surprising marriage of a poor immigrant woman to a wealthy American lasted two years. Nellie, seven months pregnant, moved to a neighbor’s home. The continuing story has odd twists and turns. Throughout, no child support was ever received, despite court orders. The author changed the names and locations.
It is the chronology of the haves and have-nots, an encyclopedia of life lessons woven through a small rural American community. In academics, athletics, student activities and jobs, the boy had good times and bad, but not without periods of anxiety. He learned, however, to use fear as a stimulant; where hard work, discipline, commitment, perseverance and an attitude of never giving up became part of his philosophy.
