When I write I get lost in the world that I create. I can visualize places and people as I write them and with the Sons of Thunder I get completely lost in the time in which it takes place. It is just before the turn of the century where men were men and women were women there was no confusion in that fact people loved hard lives yet they made the best of what they had. Preacher were respected people would go out of their ways to help one another, mustaches were huge and dressed were long it was a glorious time in America where everything was brand new from radio, to movies, to the automobile everything was advancing, and yet there was still the horse that was everyone’s friend. They were transportation; they helped with the farm work and they help save lives it was a great time to be alive. My hope is that this book will help pull you from your everyday reality and for a few hours take you back to a time where things were simpler, tougher, more dangerous, and yet more free. So kick back and enjoy The sons of thunder. Tim Simpson March 2, 2019 Kingsport tn.
