Although Roy was not born until 5 years after his grandfather's death, he heard many stories about his grandfather, famously known as"The Stuttering Preacher" from his parents, his older siblings, and townspeople. When researching for his previous book "Seventh Son, A Northeast Texas Boyhood," Roy found numerous anecdotes and testimonials in local newspapers across the South and Texas about his grandfather.
