Item description for The Beanery: A Village Named Ormsby : An Orphan's Story of Tough Love, Comic Relief, and Reaching for the American Dream by James W. Settle...

An orphan's story of tough love, comic relief, and reaching for the American dream

The Louisville and Jefferson County Children's Home provided a difficult and austere beginning for James W. Settle, D.D.S. However, he also received an excellent education at the Children's Home and went on to live a full, rich life filled with community service. THE BEANERY is a fascinating, inspiring, and humorous chronicle of his life that includes, among many other things, his experiences in the Navy before WWII and his lifelong love of music. Now retired, at age 90, Dr. Settle still performs regularly with the Watsonville Marching and Concert Band. The American Dream, with all of its rewards, has become a reality for James W. Settle.

The Beanery Review  Oct 17, 2003
What a great book! I compare the times back in the 20's and 30's to now and find it interesting that an orphan could have such a great chance to be the best he could be and with such excellence expected of him. Yet today it is hard for me, a single mom, to get my own children to be so energetic about learning. Is it that there are so many distractions? Maybe it is the fact that he had the space to dream and the teachers and, in most cases, mentors able to take the time to sustain such a "village". Yet we all have the chance and choice to make something of ourselves and to be the mentors to others. Who knows what others will say of this generation in 80 years?
The book is very well written and thoroughly researched for someone who is 87-90 years old. What a treasure for his descendants! Makes me proud to be his daughter.
P.S.: My dad completed a book signing on November 1 and a Pacific Brass Band concert November 2. He contracted pneumonia and died November 11, Veterans Day, 2003. He smiled when he lifted the book knowing we could enjoy his memories forever. He sincerely wishes all of you would write your own memoirs. It is a true family endeavor. Blessings.
