Sharp Top

Sharp Top

A touching story that humanizes this slice of history- beginning in 1929, it also focuses on the Great Depression and World War II eras. The setting is Bedford, Virginia, and its famed mountains, the Peaks of Otter. Through significant research, the story depicts local, national, and international events, including the building of the Blue Ridge Parkway and the CCCs involvement, plus the horrors of WWII and how it affected the small town and its mountain people forever.


“Hank definitely enjoyed SHARP TOP, perhaps more than any book he has read.  It was hard for him to put down and brought back many memories for him from early childhood right up to the D-Day Memorial.  He appreciates very much the accuracy of the history you wove throughout this beloved story from beginning to end.” – Bonnie & Hank Menefee, The Villages, FL

“This book captures the realities of the hungry years of The Depression.”
-Peter Viemeister, Author/Historian, Hamilton’s Books

“On the pages of Sharp Top you will take a step back in history- your heartstrings will be touched as you explore the ’30s and ’40s in the rural mountains of Virginia and gain insight to how WWII changed them forever. The Mons Community no longer exists and writings of this nature keep its vanishing history alive for generations to come.”
-Diane A. Kidd, National D-Day Memorial Foundation
