This is a remarkable memoir of a most remarkable individual in United States History.
In a country that enjoys excessive racial strife, it sets apart a man who had not considered the 'color line' until the impositions that came from outside.
I recommend this read to all who would like to join in resolving issues imposed upon a society that desperately needs healing.

An American Classic
An Hour Before Daylight: Memoirs of a Rural Boyhood by former President Jimmy Carter is a must read for anyone with interest in service to others. President Carter's humble nature is evident from childhood, where he learned the greatest truths in life. His childhood made him the man he is today; the first American President to redefine the Post Presidential History. It is an honor to be in his presence and to read about his life and work.
