Factory towns face problems when the factories shut down. Everyone has heard versions of that story-involving steel and auto plants in the Midwest, sawmills in the Northwest, coal mines in Appalachia or copper mines in the Southwest, other facilities in other towns

Factory towns face problems when the factories shut down. Everyone has heard versions of that story-involving steel and auto plants in the Midwest, sawmills in the Northwest, coal mines in Appalachia or copper mines in the Southwest, other facilities in other towns. suburbs in northern Virginia and the military-based economy of Norfolk and the Tidewater-we were reminded of the problems cities had even when those factories were up and running.

Growing up in a small town might seem boring at times, but when you compare it to being raised in a large city, there’s really no contest. Small towns make up most of Texas, after all, and many who moved to a big city later on have their roots in a tiny town somewhere. If you grew up in small town Texas, you will definitely remember the reasons why there’s no better place to spend your childhood. 1) There's never a shortage of wide open spaces to play in and fields to aimlessly wander through. 2) You get to wake up to peaceful scenery like this everyday.

The thirty-three stories in this collection touch on changes that affected not only residents of small towns, but virtually all Americans, in the '50s and '60s—changes in race relations, family mobility, music, cars, sports, religion, politics, technology, even food. Set in a small town in Southeast Texas—Sour Lake (population 1,600)—the essays engage memories of simpler times and explore what may be of lasting value from that era. Stories deal with such varied topics as blue jeans, pizza, communism, the first Volkswagen in town, visiting the Queen of England, the Kennedy assassination, growing up in a segregated world, wet-dry elections, the influence of a one-armed coach, and why so many people in small towns are called by their first and middle names, like Linda Sue, Bobby Joe, and Carl Wayne.

I greatly enjoyed "A Small Town in Texas". I also grew up in a small town, actually a smaller town than Mr. Dromgoole did, I think. Actually outside of town near Liberty Hill, Texas. As a writer basing stories on my memories of small town life, as well as my memoirs, Mr. Dromgoole's memories serve as pleasant reminders of my own. Every page or two yields an "oh yeah, there was that!". His memories predate mine by a couple of years, actually, but they aren't that much different. Small towns are very much the same, and at the same time very unique! Well done and thank you!

This book was pretty much garbage. I read the first few chapters and got sick of it. It's essentially the author congratulating himself for being such an enlightened soul in a very unenlightened time. Very pompous and without any real attempt to examine the real issues of the time. Con-flagulations, you're a wonderful person who had to grow up in a time when people hated busing and feared communism. Never mind the fact that busing ruined our urban cores or that communism killed 100 million people, Glenn Dromgoole is a good person because he was on the right side (supposedly) of those issues. Let him tell you about it.

Self-righteous pap.

If you want to read a book about how nice it was to grow up in Texas in the 1950s and 1960s, this isn't it. Dromgoole paints a nightmarish picture of racists and paranoids. He and his family are mostly innocent, of course. They were the good guys.

Glenn Dromgoole grew up during the Fifties and Sixties in the small town of Sour Lake in Hardin County, on the edge of the Big Thicket. This book of essays captures the spirit of that place and a bygone era. His father, Rev. Glenn Dromgoole, the pastor of the First Baptist Church in Sour Lake, was sort of a legendary figure in the area. I always thought he was something of a legend because he stayed at one Baptist church for so many years. But this book shows he was years ahead on civil rights and integration and took a very courageous stand to that effect. Lost a lot of friends over it. This book, however, will grow in value as the years go by.
