Publication date: February 2012
Digital Book format: PDF (Adobe DRM)
Homeless vagrant with college education publishes book for success story! “Artistic, inspirational, and educational,” echos Homeless Spartacus from under the bridge. "Magnificent photos with color and contrast." Barbara Jean, who attends barber college so she knows how to cut hair, she says, "When I read 'Something About Hats' I laughed so hard I peed my pants." Raise the Flag is not The Catcher in the Rye or Harry Potter—no wizards, witches, or flying broomsticks; just teachers, principals, professors, mentors, and barbers, but Raise the Flag is about searching for identity, purpose, and a career, and how flattering it is for the author when a young student does their book report after reading Raise the Flag. This one, you will like to look at the covers, front and back, and better yet, read for yourself about the progression of writing and value of education in the life of the author. It is said, never judge a book by the cover nor a person by their color, by the length of their hair, or by the clothes they wear, so chill out with this literary six-pack and enjoy reading the stories in Raise the Flag. The author, James More, by using the tools that an education provides produces six stories under one cover for Raise the Flag, while camping in a tent and fighting the home fought battles for life, liberty, and happiness. Raise the Flag is a collection of six stories about the progression of writing and value of education in the life of the author, who graduates from grade school, bounces through high school at several locations, graduates with honor, attends trade school, before doing a difficult, dangerous, demanding occupation of electrical lineman, suffers an agonizing injury forcing him to leave the security of his job, so he embarks on a search for a career, begins fulltime college classes, earns his degree, practices writing beyond college, completes a home study course, so forty years later he publishes Raise the Flag.
