Hungry tells the story of the Sullivan clan, who lived in Rough Edge, Clebit, and Pickens, Oklahoma, from 1910 to 1962. Why "Hungry"? Because they always were... But that hunger-both for food and a desire to achieve more-pushed the Sullivan kids to reach further than they ever thought possible. Growing up in a harsh environment, the family suffered physical ailments and deprivation, but every one of the Sullivan children will agree: If not for their upbringing in the Clebit/Pickens area, they would not have had the courage and tenacity to accomplish what they have. Their father instilled a strong work ethic in his children, and their mother knew the value of a good education. The Sullivans were taught the value of hard work, sacrifice, and adaptability by not only their parents but by the community, the school, and the church. Hungry is a nostalgic memoir and a fascinating snapshot of American history. It's also a reminder that hard work, respect for others, and honoring your word can take you far. About the Author: The author, Sam L. Sullivan, spent his youth in a small isolated timber town in Southeastern Oklahoma. This book is a collection of stories from the Sullivan family during the first six decades of the twentieth century. The stories reflect the values held, not only by the Sullivan's of that area, but the values of the community members in those small towns as well. There is a reason for calling this book, "Hungry". Calling the book, "Hungry", has to do with food yes, but more so about the lessons learned that kept us hungry to achieve more in life.
