Originally published in 1984, Senator Ervin's delightful collection of stories and anecdotes winds its way from his native Morganton through Chapel Hill and Harvard, the military, the North Carolina Supreme Court, the United States Senate, and Watergate. It represents a lifetime of wit and wisdom--told in the late Senator Ervin's inimitable style.
"A decade after his TV tour de force as chairman of the Senate's Watergate Committee, Sam Ervin has lost nary a jot of his formidable charm and folksy wit. . . . The reader can just sit back, feet propped up, and imagine craggy country lawyer Ervin, shaggy brows a-waggin', spinning his yarns. . . . A jocund, nimble-minded country lawyer, expertly ladling out moonshine folksiness."
"Sure to brighten up the gloomiest of days."
