BECKLEY, WV (LOOTPRESS) – West Virginia-born author James Nixon will be returning to his native Raleigh County on Tuesday to promote his latest literary endeavor, Graveled Country Roads.
The book, which recently shipped out in its Third Edition, details Nixon’s own experiences growing up in the Mountain State in a family of eleven children, including nine boys and two girls.
An array of details in the book pertain to the fascinating story of the author’s family and roots, while much is offered to convey the experiences of the author himself as well. These tales span from Nixon’s childhood school days in a one room schoolhouse to his successes in sports, academia, and student government at Shady Spring High School – where he served as class president for three years – and much more.
Other notable anecdotes to appear include those recounting a near-death experience battling a wildfire at eleven years old, travels undertaken with Mickey Mantle and Pete Rose in a professional capacity as an adult, and the co-founding of one of the very first Independent Marketing Organizations, to name a few.
All profits generated from sales of Graveled Country Roads will serve to benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and Cerebral Palsy. Those interested in securing their own copy of the book may do so here for $27, which covers both the cost of the book itself as well as shipping charges.
