Item #7072 Tales of a Tennessee Yeoman (FRANKLIN, TN). W. C. YATES.

Tales of a Tennessee Yeoman (FRANKLIN, TN)

Franklin, TN: Self Published, 1991. First Edition. Original wraps. 5 1/2 X 8 3/8 Inches. 460 PP. Good. Item #7072

Scarce original copy of this history of Franklin, TN and surrounding area. Told in simple stories from the memory of Yates, a beloved Franklin teacher and High School Principal. Includes personal accounts of life in Franklin from the 1930's to the 1980's. Mostly one-page chapters include the likes of:

"Buck Hatcher and the Russian Wrestler"
"Franklin High School - 1921"
"Fabulous Big Rich Scruggs"
"Saloons Close to Franklin"
"Various Spectacles on Carter's Creek Road"
"Life at Southall School 1909 - 1917"

A scarce book in commerce. This copy is worn a bit at edges and corners and appears to have been read a few times. I assume this will make little difference to the end buyer as you will probably be a fellow lover of Franklin and ready to read about our beloved little town (that has changed so much).

Price: $75.00
