Abstract:

"As a member of the "Greatest Generation," Buckner F. Melton was born at the end of the Great Depression, raised as a poor preacher's kid in the Deep South, served in the Navy during two wars, had a full career as a lawyer, and served in public office. He also spent a huge amount of time working for various civic and charitable causes and economic development in Macon and the state of Georgia." "Using many episodes in his life, Melton weaves a memoir that is both informative and warm. His days growing up will bring life to a bygone era. His service in the navy will delight and inspire. The first time he sees his future wife reminds one of a 1950s romance movie." "This book is the story of his life, on the one hand private, and on the other in public service. Serving the city of Macon as mayor and in many other capacities, Melton transformed a city from its troubled past into a city with a future."--BOOK JACKET.
