When the Old Bell Rang
- Additional information
Revised and edited by Tim Kinnard, great-grandson of the author, W.D. Redwine, and great-great grandson of the story’s protagonist, L.M Redwine.
From the backwoods of North Carolina to the wild west towns of Arkansas along the Indian Territory border during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Lingurn (“Lingie”) March Redwine knew what it meant to pursue a dream. His insatiable love of learning from a young age set his feet on the path of teaching and kept him going through even the hardest of trials.
Along the way, L.M. marries the love of his life, and together they make a name for themselves as pioneer, one-room schoolhouse teachers in Choctaw country, coal-mining towns, and farming communities, including the tough frontier town of Fort Smith with its infamous saloons, outlaws, and hangings.
W.D. Redwine beautifully captures the flavor of the times with inspired tales and transports readers back to a picturesque era of America’s past, filled with both joyous moments and setbacks told through the story of the struggles and triumphs of Professor Redwine and his wife.
