Whatever happened to diligence and hard work? Are they relics of yesteryear that have gone the way of the cotton patch? Roy Rains's character-building stories of life in a sharecropper's home will give your family a nostalgic peek into what made the greatest generation so great. Whether sweating it out with a hoe, cotton sack, or milk pail, Roy learned endurance, responsibility, and a host of other character qualities while living off the land. Told in his own homemade style, Roy's childhood stories recount the family values that would later enable him to own and operate a successful appliance business, raise an impressive herd of registered Angus cattle, and serve as county commissioner of Muskogee, Oklahoma. Far from complaining, Roy would be the last one to say he endured hardships. They were "good times" and "good years." If you are looking for a painless way to impart lasting values, gather the family and enjoy the old-fashioned simplicity of "Sharecropper's Dream."
