Come Quitin Time By: Wilt Browning

Come Quitin Time

By: Wilt Browning
Come Quittin’ Time is the third cotton mill life book by Wilt Browning following Linthead about what life was like in mill villages of the middle of the 20th century and The Rocks the story of a good mill baseball team that for a season competed less than successfully yet made history at the professional minor league level. In the early part of the 20th century thousands of children some of them as young as 5 and 6 were forced to forego education to go to work in the burgeoning textile industry in the southern United States. One of those children was Martha Chappell and Come Quittin’ Time is her true story. Her story as with many other child laborers is one of struggle and triumph and deep faith. And her story offers a rare look at the human side of factory life because her life almost perfectly ran a parallel course to the robust life of the cotton industry. When she was young the industry was young when she grew old much of the cotton mill industry grew old as well and much of it died before she did. Martha died a few days before Christmas 2002 but by then life as she had known it on the mill hill was already gone. In the end she had gotten through it all with a dogged determination an abiding faith and a clear understanding of how to use her skills at baking home-made biscuits as bartering chips even for her very life.

Do They Play Football in Heaven?

By: Wilt Browning

“Mike Pope is a great coach and a great motivator. I am what I am because of him.” Troy Brown Former Record-setting Wide Receiver New England Patriots “This book is one of the best I have ever read. As a person who has spent his life associated and involved in some area of sports it touched me deeply and at times emotionally. It is a great story.” Dr. Herb Appenzeller Retired college athletic director and editor of the national newsletter From the Gym to the Jury “You won’t find a better offensive line coach and you won’t find anybody more passionate about the game than Mike Pope.” Greg Crolley Head Football Coach Lakewood High School Sumter S.C. “I never saw Mike anything but positive” even facing a double amputation. “It was like he was infused with something.

WARRIOR (hard back edition) By: Wilt Browning

WARRIOR (hard back edition)

By: Wilt Browning
“For many years I began my day by reading Wilt Browning’s outstanding articles in the Greensboro Daily News and later the News & Record. Wilt had a way with words that captured the essence of that day’s story. Wilt is now writing books with the same clarity and grace that make his stories leap off the page.
“As a Korean War-era veteran with the United States Coast Guard I never saw any actual combat. But thanks to Wilt’s newest book Warrior From Grenades to Greeting Cards the Story of an American Fighting Man I feel as if I was right in the middle of the action. Wilt exquisitely captured the story of Ken Simpson a Korean War veteran who may not have been rightfully honored for his exploits during that conflict. This book will change that injustice and allow readers to feel as if they travelled right along with Ken both during and after the war.
“I am an avid fan of Wilt Browning’s writing and his newest book confirms for me that he is one of the best storytellers in the country. I am equally proud that he is a constituent and friend of mine. I heartily recommend Warrior From Grenades to Greeting Cards the Story of an American Fighting Man. Congressman Howard Coble
Five-time award winning journalist Wilt Browning has written a compelling inspirational
true story about a decorated military man. An army chaplain called Ken Simpson “the bravest man I ever met fearless when he faced the enemy.” After his distinguished
military career ended Ken was called a “marketing genius” in the greeting card industry where he saved several companies from bankruptcy just as he saved the men under his command from death behind enemy lines. I recommend Wilt Browning’s
masterful book “Warrior” to all who love a great story.
Herb Appenzeller Friend and former coach
Ken Simpson was the most unique man in business I ever encountered and I was involved in seven companies in my time. The common way to get ahead in business and climb the corporate ladder is by doing everything you can to please the people above you and by abusing the people under you.
Ken was the absolute opposite of that. He frequently abused the people above him on the corporate ladder and did everything he needed to do to make the people working for him happy. Let me put it this way Ken was the George Patton of the sales force. He didn’t take anything off anybody. He was a take-no-prisoners kind of guy working in the corporate world. Benjamin Sotille Retired CEO
