Bloomington, Indiana (PRWEB) August 06, 2014
Spanning more than 70 years, author Jack Evans’ life story is one of dedication to his craft and his family.
To spread the knowledge and history of his trade – construction – Evans publishes his new book, “Education of a Poor Country Boy” (published by AuthorHouse).
“This book will appeal to people who are interested in the history of the construction field, and those who enjoy reading about the different stages in a person’s life and how that life is influenced by experience, God, family, and friends,” Evans says.
Part history, part memoir, Evans’ book is filled with insight into the construction business, delving deeply into detail about advances in construction machinery and new methods of drafting projects over the past 70 years.
Evans says his book can help readers “understand that life is short and how they live that life is very important.”
