Reviews - What do customers think about Bridge Crew: Growing Up in the Blue Ridge Mountains in the 1940's and 50's?

A nostalgic reminiscence of days of yore.  Dec 9, 2006
Written by high school teacher and principal Sam Shumate, The Bridge Crew is a memoir of growing up in a Blue Ridge mountain village in the 1940's and 50's. In an era before television, video games, personal computers, and personal automobiles, the kids met under a pedestrian walkway to plan activities to entertain themselves - from building huge spider webs on the bridge to oiling the tracks to watch the "Virginia Creeper" attempt to leave the Warrensville depot. True tales of mischief, with some hijinks that were deadly serious at the time yet can be regarded with humor after years of reflection, make The Bridge Crew a nostalgic reminiscence of days of yore.
 
A visit to the past with a passionate author  Nov 11, 2006
I love this book. First of all, it is by one of my former teachers at Northwest Ashe High School in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I grew up just a few miles from the author's home and the setting of this great book. My husband's family moved to Warrensville in the 60's when he was only a baby so he grew up with the colorful characters Mr. Shumate describes in such passionate and eloquent detail.

This is a must read for anyone who is from a small town and wants to drift back in time to a simpler life for "just a spell".

 
Great Book  Aug 29, 2006
I am in awe of how the author paints a picture of life in this rural community. I read the book in one sitting, I laughed so hard in places that I thought I would hurt myself. Mr. Shumate is a captivating writer and I hope that we will see more from him.
