Teetering On The Brink
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, Jan 3, 2003 - Biography & Autobiography - 238 pages
"After a long career in teaching, including 27 years in an inner-city high school in Houston, author Gary Weibye burned out, dropped out, and literally headed for the hills: the Ozark Mountains of Northern Arkansas, a full hour away from the nearest freeway, and about 2,500 feet above his accustomed elevation. These diverse stories and sketches are about the delights, the challenges, and the cultural shock he and his wife experienced in their new life on the rim of what tourists are instructed to call "The Grand Canyon of the Ozarks"--an astonishingly beautiful realm where you get to gaze down upon rainbows, look eagles in the eye, and wander in pink clouds where, by rights, choirs should be singing. The stories are about what people think when an abyss is at their feet (whether that abyss is a canyon or a stage of life)--surprising thoughts about the climb behind and the plunge ahead." --Back cover.
