"From Appalachia to the White House" tells the story of Joe Dye. Born in rural southwestern Virginia, this is a story of the joys and struggles of daily farm life in the mid-twentieth century: cutting hay, making sorghum molasses, killing hogs, and growing tobacco. It is also a story of hope, as Dye did not allow a leg condition keep him from a career in Washington DC, where he was employed by the FBI, the Metropolitan Police Department, and the US Secret Service White House Police, where he served six presidents. Laugh with Dye as he describes interactions and relationships with the likes of J. Edgar Hoover, John F. Kennedy Jr., Walter Mondale, and George H. W. Bush.
"From Appalachia to the White House" is entertaining and inspirational. It is also a true story of how God will provide for a life filled with many blessings.
