Tales From the Pushin Off brings to life the era of the 1940’s and early 1950’s--of what rural life was like for families and children of that time. The stories portray the lives of a close-knit, extended family and their children, during the times of the Depression Era, WWII, food rationing, and life in a small town atop a mountain, located in the Cumberland Mountains in Southern Middle Tennessee. Most of the stories describe the deeds, misdeeds, and escapades of the author and two of his first cousins, both of whom grew up with him.
