AN HOUR BEFORE DAYLIGHT Memories of a Rural Boyhood

by | Read by Tom Stechschulte

Biography & Memoir • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

Recalling the president's childhood experiences, the narrator takes listeners to the Carter family farm in Georgia, utilizing a heavy Southern drawl for the author's bland memories. He also takes many opportunities to create Southern voices for the relatives, adding spark to tales of farm chores, poverty, segregation, and dating. The rich stories of paternal discipline portray the values of a father, a small town, and an era of history called the Great Depression. Unfortunately, while the audiobook clearly portrays the milieu of the boy, the now mature author has left out what we wanted most--the personal feelings of the boy yet to become famous. J.A.H.
