Thread That Runs So True a Mountain School Teacher Tells His Story Jesse Stuart
Thread That Runs So True a Mountain School Teacher Tells His Story by Jesse Stuart. Lexington, Kentucky. University of Kentucky. 1974. Reprint. Hardcover. Very Good in Very Good dust jacket. Edgewear. DJ is worn and torn at edges. Stuart traces his twenty-year career in education, which began, when he was only seventeen years old, with teaching grades one through eight in a one-room schoolhouse. Before long Stuart was on a path that made him principal and finally superintendent of city and county schools. The road was not smooth, however, and Stuart faced many challenges, from students who were considerably older -- and bigger -- than he to well-meaning but distrustful parents, uncooperative administrators and, most daunting, his own fear of failure. Through it all, Stuart never lost his abiding faith in the power of education. With essays by Thomas D. Clark and Wilma Dykeman. 313 pages.
