AMY CLARK

...
In time I found heroes like Thomas Wolfe, Jon Fox, Jr., and Jesse Stuart, who inspired me. In her interviews with folks who have achieved success in every area from sports to medicine, from writing to education, Amy Clark's stories will inspire the reader to achieve his or her dreams. As a proud son of the 'hill country' who has achieved a degree of success, I recommend this book with enthusiasm and admiration. Bestselling author Adriana Trigiani writes that the book includes "the best and brightest of our hills and taps their infinite powers of faith, ambition and belief, to show us all a better way to live."
