This yarn details the life of Charley Dobyns and his clan. Born in 1872 near Bonham, Texas, Charley was an honest, loving, country boy who would endure many difficult events in his life. He lost his parents to Yellow Fever at the tender age of sixteen, and vowed to raise his younger brother, David and sister, Viola. He found work and help along the way until he met Mila who would become his wife. Charley and Mila, persevered through the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl of the 1930's and a murder, all the while raising a family and never losing site of his brother and sister. Charley died on July 4, 1955 but his legacy lives on with his great granddaughter Shirley McLain. 4 Stars
