SAN ANTONIO (PRWEB) August 07, 2018

Dr. Norman Hall had a great life with many memories. At age 94, he is thankful that he has the back roads of a lifetime of memories to travel and reflect upon. He now shares a variety of his experiences in his memoir titled "Back Roads of My Memory" (published by LifeRich Publishing). For more details about the book, please visit

The book looks back at the life of Hall navigating change, overcoming challenges and bearing witness to history. Along the way, he ponders his successes and failures, the whys and the why-nots, the might-have-been, the near misses and the what-ifs in his life. While he grew up as a Texas country boy with limited success in school, he graduated from college, served four years in the Army and spent 70 years as a school administrator.

Hall recalls adventures dating all the way back to the 1920s and 1930s when his boyhood ranch was one of only two in a three-mile area. His playmates were Mexican children, and as he played with them, he learned their language and many of their customs. The roads were mainly dirt, and the rural mail carrier was the chief source of news for most families. For him, life back then was made up of many carefree days enjoying the small-town atmosphere. His other stories document what it was like living in Texas for 94 years.

Retired educator Delores Hittinger says, "I insisted that Dr. Hall document some of his life's stories because of all the years he has been an educator. I am impressed with his ability to begin as an educator in 1941 in a one-room schoolhouse to success in the Technology Age. As an educator myself, I am excited to share the book with others because it is rich in history."
