The Stecoah Valley Banditos
About the Book
On a bright April morning G.L Holder decided to go fishing. He and his friends, Alvin Edwards and Vollie Crisp went fishing every chance they got, and today was to be no exception. It was Saturday so there was no school and they could look forward to a full day of loafing by the creek, fishing poles in hand. GL. packed a lunch of fresh baked biscuits his mother had baked for breakfast along with a square of corn bread left over from the previous day’s evening meal. When Alvin showed up they explained the idea. G.L. wasn’t sure it was a good idea but he was willing to let Vollie give it a try.
About the Author
Jean Edwards lives with her husband on the banks of the Saint George River. Throughout her growing up years she was interested in writing poetry, essays and scripts for marionette performances. While raising her four children, she worked for the Food and Drug Administration preparing congressional correspondence for signature and obtained a position as an Internationally rated Gymnastics Official. She worked with theater in schools and the City of Rockville, Maryland Ballet. When her four children graduated from college (an engineer, a schoolteacher, a YMCA program director and a Public Health Service Commander), she was able to devote more time to her passion for writing. This is her twentieth book which includes nine historical novels, a script and music for an operetta, 6 children’s books, a book of essays and three books of poetry. Her song lyrics are included in a compilation of poems.
