Meet Howard “Snortin’” Horton Bennett, a boy born into a hard-scrabble life in West Virginia during the Great Depression. A young man who, following his father’s example before him, manages to scrape by day to day, despite one adversity after another. A determined man courageous enough to keep going and ingenious enough to spot—and take—opportunities that give him hope for the future. A true American spirit who carves out a better life for himself and those around him, using sheer guts, determination and—most importantly—a bit of humor. Follow Snortin’ Horton, through an extremely personalized memoir set within a broader historical context. His journey will not only resonate with those who lived through the Great Depression, but also inspire and inform those born later, into a more prosperous America. This oral history is no-holds-barred, just like the personality it celebrates. Good times and hard, tough and celebratory, all have their place in a story sure to engage all the way through the end. Howard Horton Bennett may have changed jobs and circumstances as fast as changing hats, but his indomitable spirit never waivers. Neither will your attention.
