Always The Rivers Flow: Deliberately a Memoir.
The Florida Classic Edition.

In Always the Rivers Flow, Pensacola News Journal Editor Emeritus prizewinning newspaper editor and cartoonist for fouty-four years, author J. Earle Bowden has captured the essence of a boy growing up into young manhood in Florida's Panhandle. He has brought to life, in a series of vignettes, that tight society which in the Depression Thirties centered about the village store. Where the purchase of a can of beans or a loaf of bread offered the day's opportunity to swap opinions on crops and often too on neighbors who were not present. He has given to the readers his own haunting heritage of a South whose sons were gallant in battle and defiant in defeat: stout men who, after death, yet touched and shaped for generations the lives of those who came after them. Bowden loves the woods, the streams, the hamlets and the beaches of his own Northwest Florida. But first and last he is a newspaperman with a newspaperman's enthusiasm for places and people, for facts and events. And he has the journalist's appreciation for the well-spun story, always spiced with a liberal potion of humor. In his easy and flowing style he has produced a book that entertains and beyond that arouses a nostalgia for a way of Panhandle life in the days that were but will not be again. 332 page illustrated hardcover.
