I Was Born When I Was Very Young
In this autobiography Justice Bill Cunningham recounts the colorful first 15 years of his life growing up in old Eddyville, a town being demolished for the impoundment of Barkley Lake. He writes about how his experiences with the river, the prison, strong parents, and the people of a dying town influenced his life and molded him into the successful jurist, public servant and author that he would become. His overarching theme is that it is the first fifteen years of living which gives birth to who we are and is, in a way, our second birth—when we are very young.
