Darwin E. Peek, retired mathematician, doesn't claim to be a wordsmith. Instead, this lifelong Texan and raconteur brands himself a truth merchant, parlaying his knack for spinning yarns into this entertaining book that immerses readers in a fascinating world of genuine, salt-of-the-earth folks. In large part autobiographical, in some places genealogical, and at all times anecdotal, Darwin's Evolution will delight readers with the author's sage reminiscences of bygone days. This is Peek's experience of life in Texas. From his birth in a West Texas ice storm after crossing the Devil's Backbone on Friday the 13th, 1940, Peek takes us down the trails, paths, tracks, and highways and byways that comprise his road of life. Along the way, we meet Granddad Charlie Peek, who would t allow anyone to take his picture; Grandma Peek, who baked biscuits from scratch three times a day; and habobs, otherwise kwn as sandstorms, which were common then. Ladies rode both horses and bulls astraddle, t sidesaddle, and the people spoke in a language all their own. Join Darwin E. Peek on his journey, and witness how life changed over time in Darwin's Evolution.
