James "Tex" Litton grew up during the lean days of the Depression. For Tex, it was the good old days: living without air conditioning, television, computers, or video games. Children played outside with few toys, used their imagination, and ventured around town unsupervised. Tex was a member of the Boy Scouts and spent many nights camping out with his troop. As a teenager, he worked as a parking garage attendant.

This simple yet dedicated way of life prepared Tex and millions of other young men for service in World War II. At the age of seventeen, he volunteered for the U.S. Navy and was at the San Diego Naval Training Center when Japan surrendered. After the war, Tex enrolled in Anderson College and met his future wife, choosing to get married instead of pursuing a career in baseball. He went on to work as a civil and criminal investigator for a number of years.

From stories of his meager childhood and working full time at the age of fourteen, to playing on sixty different golf courses in Texas and more than 100 throughout the U.S., Litton's memoir, They Call Me Tex, is a charming account of life during America's Golden Age and beyond from a member of the Greatest Generation.
