Bura Randolph Freeman. Northport, Ala.: Christian Pathways, 2012. 137 pp. (Paperback).
Northport native Bura Randolph Freeman takes readers down memory lane in this memoir that spans his childhood years. He tells interesting stories about life before televisions, indoor plumbing and refrigerators — a life that he portrays as idyllic and far superior to modern-day life. The book includes his memories from early childhood into his high school years.
Those who grew up in the same area (or era) as Freeman will no doubt enjoy the reminiscences about the “good old days” in rural Alabama.
