Furman Grad, Sociology major but it was little tougher than Auburn football players had Had three dates with beautiful women the summer of 1978. Did not marry any of em. Never married anybody cause what was available was undesirable and what was desirable was unaffordable. Unlucky in love as they say and even still it is sometimes heartbreaking. Had a Pakistani Jr. Davis Cupper on the Ropes the summer of 84, City Courts, Rome Georgia I've a baby sitter, watched peoples homes while they were away on Vacation.

Crossville native's book stellar review in Huntsville Times

Sunday May 31, Huntsville, Times had this sterling review of Don Gregory's book, Jungvolk.
Gregory is a fascinating character I have gotten to know at his Knife Stand at Trade Day in Collinsville.
He is a 1972 grad of Crossville High School with my first cousin Anne Jordan. Momma's brother James and Aunt Kay were teachers there at the time.
I'm hoping his alma mater will have Gregory back to have a program at his alma mater for this fascinating piece of History he has done justice. And maybe NACC will feature him this fall as well.
As you see in the links below Gregory is fascinated by the movie Valkyrie. He is exploring aspects of that film for his next book. Great teachable moment for HS students and lay history buffs as well.

and the official website for the book had great article about Valkyrie in May 20 issue, Honor's Gasp
