Portion of title Growing today's leaders the old fashioned way
Abstract "From the tiny seedbed of Falkland, North Carolina grew highly respected leaders in business, military, education, and civil rights. Unlock the secret by walking the fields of wisdom with humble sharecropper Roy Gorham and reap your own harvest. Roy 'Joy' Gorham--fondly called Daddy--masterfully modeled leadership: Plow resistant hearts with respect, humility, and old-fashioned work ethic. Plant tiny seeds of truth and transformation. Grow continuous crops of ageless wisdom. Lead from the power of strong character and values. Seasoned leaders--looking for fresh, organic ideas to add to their storehouses -- or aspiring leaders who are just getting started, will find a wealth of deeply rooted wisdom spanning one of the most tumultuous times in American history."' --Back cover.
