Every life is a journey and each has a beginning and an end. Jackie K Cooper is still involved in his journey, and he offers a look at the highs and lows of his trip in a series of reflections back to another time and another place. These reflections are part sad, part humorous, but always entertaining. In these pages you will find a common thread to your life as well as Cooper's. It is your story, it is his story, it is everyone's story. His recollection of his journey starts and ends with a death but in between there is nothing but life. Inside these pages the sun shines warm and the friendships are inspiring. This trip is a reader's delight of fanciful stories that will leave you with a wish for more. A "gentle southern man" is your guide. The road awaits.
