Phil Evaul grew up in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina. He and his wife, Melinda, have two grown children and three fabulous grandchildren. He enjoys exploring back roads (which drove his young children crazy) and taking photos of derelict barns and rustic settings, many of which can be seen at www.melindaevaul.com. He is Pastor of Sale Creek Independent Presbyterian Church, in Sale Creek, TN.
His wife has authored a very fine book, "Grow Old With Me" available in paperback and for e-readers.
Daniel feels his family slipping away while all he can do is watch helplessly. He knows the importance of heritage to survive a hard life in the Appalachian Mountains of the 1940’s. But his children are restless, dissatisfied with traditional ways, and want to make life in their own image. The Pittman family becomes the battleground for the conflict of a stable past against a vague future.
