     FOREVER is an addition to the Alabama-Bryant canon.  The heart of the book is correspondence from 1966 through 1971 when the author, Danny Thomas, was a member of the Crimson Tide varsity football team. Thomas wrote home faithfully and unashamedly as he experienced the rigors and privations required by the winningest football coach in SEC history. The book also includes letters to and from Coach Paul “Bear” Bryant during and after Thomas’s playing days. While the author was not destined to stardom as a player, he learned important life lessons at the feet of this coaching legend, such as the perseverance and resourceful-ness required to survive adversity.

  --Coach Danny Ford

     When Mrs. Lockwood dropped her keys into Buckley’s open palm, that was when he started thinking he could steal from her. She had hired him that morning, saying, “I need you to drive my truck up to Andersonville to pick up a load of cross ties.”

     So begins Clinch River Pearls, "a captivating story that brings laughter and tears. The very well-written story plot revolves around the issue of segregation in a small southern town but is relevant today because social justice is needed whenever there is blatant inequality. I enjoyed reading Clinch River Pearls and recommend it to anyone who likes historical fiction."

     In the fall of 1956, during the early days of the Civil Rights struggle in the American South, the Tennessee hamlet of Clinton watches the Yankee rabble-rouser John Kasper, who’s on trial for inciting riots opposing integration of the local high school. The respected attorney Luther Reeves, a widower, finds himself drawn to a young female teacher who has become the target of malicious, racist attacks. His devotion to his dead wife’s memory leaves him awkward around her, but Reeves is determined to protect this high-spirited teacher and the school she serves, if he can, from the violence that threatens to engulf her and the entire community. Luther Reeves’ story illustrates one man’s search for fulfillment after years of numbing solitude, focusing on how he is forced to forsake his lawyer’s tools of rhetoric and persuasion, relying instead on his instincts, taking dangerous chances, and learning to love again.
