Life is never easy, especially so when one is born in a boxcar in the center of a railroad siding in the Great Depression. But just because it is not easy does not mean in any way that nothing can happen or become of it. From Pat Nobles, author of “The Stalkers,” “Bloodbath Hill,” and “Mexico,” comes “An Adventurous Life,” an inspiring account that centers on the life of boxcar-born Pat Nobles and his trials of everyday life to overcome the things that usually keep a person from succeeding.

Nobles wrote the book to show one can accomplish whatever they wish through hard work and refusal to give in to the things that keep one from following a dream. Based from his true-life experience, the author believes Pat Nobles’ story is the story of everyone in today’s world. According to him, “the story will appeal to anyone who dreams and wants to succeed by way of what they decide to do through their own hard work.”

In this book, readers can follow Pat, born in Childress, Texas, in a boxcar on a stock pen siding beside an overpass by a highway going north and south. Right from the very start, the boxcar has been his humble abode from the years 1933 to 1941. He was picked on and ridiculed by just about everyone in public schools he attended for his social standing. Not only was he an outcast in circles, it was difficult for him to get a date later in life. All that changes when he becomes an official player of the junior high football team, a favorable circumstance that helps him make a name for himself and change his boxcar-born reputation.

Readers can follow Pat in this engaging narrative made extra special with Nobles’ clever antic of incorporating humor and entertainment. A tour de force rehash of the author’s life, “An Adventurous Life” is an imposing coming-of-age story of rewriting destiny to be accepted and achieve success.
