Local author Jerry McAbee held a book signing at the Ider Library recently. McAbee told those attending about his book and how the title of the book, “Stubborn Men and Parched Corn,” which is told from a southern soldier’s point of view during the Civil war, is ironic because in his book he talks about how the southern soldiers were stubborn for continuing to fight in a losing battle. The parched corn was all the soldiers had to survive on in the harsh times.

McAbee’s book can be bought on Amazon.
