The author of THE STORY OF JEWEL is presently living in Pensacola, Fl. She was born in Broken Bow, Oklahoma. Her parents moved to Springdale, Arkansas, when she was eighteen months old. She lived in Springdale until she moved to Pensacola in 2003. Her first memories were of the Great Depression era. This limited her ability to receive the education she so eagerly desired. This book tells how she eventually overcame this obstacle and gained a college education. After receiving her degree, she taught school for twenty years. With a strong belief that no one should let their age or circumstances hinder them from their dreams and goals, she took nursing classes at age seventy and became Mr. Sam Walton's day nurse the last five weeks of his life. She lived a very happy, active life and puts great humor in her book. Hopefully this book will be an inspiration to all who read it.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Story of Jewel?
A beautiful inspiring story filled with layers of wisdom Jul 2, 2008
This unassuming, simple story of an extraordinary life of a common woman is a surprize within its cover. I was spellbound by the storytelling style of the writing, which is unusual to find in autobiographical work. The book takes on a style which is at once whymsical and sincere, as though the reader was sitting at the foot of grandma's rocking chair. With each chapter I found myself more hypnotized by her words. The story is one of fate and faith, tears and laughter, valleys and mountains - both me and my children loved this wonderful story.
The life of Jewel takes a refreshingly different perspective, focusing on the bright places of life rather than the dark ones. Each chapter carries hidden treasures of wisdom which are highlighted in the post chapter sections appropriately titled "jewels of wisdom." Don't be distracted or mislead by the simplicity of the writing. The depth beneath the words carries layers of richness, wisdom, and fun. The reader will be left with an unexplainable optimisim certain to affect every area of your life in pied piper fashion. Young and old alike will be inspired to overcome any obstacle and become a better person. This amazing little story is a must read and carries a value far beyond its price!
