35th Star Publishing was saddened recently to learn that one of our authors, Charles E. Sutton, had passed away. Mr. Sutton had penned the memoir of his adventurous life, They Called Me Shep. His nephew, author/historian Terry Lowry, had assisted him with editing, and we had the honor and privilege of being his publisher.
You may find Mr. Sutton’s obituary at this link: http://www.dnronline.com/obituaries/view/2712
Our prayer: May Shep’s adventurous attitude inspire us all to live life to the fullest.
Thank you to all who stopped by to visit with us at our booth at the West Virginia Book Festival on October 13 and 14 at the Charleston Civic Center. We were honored to have Mr. Allen Clower, descendant of Captain Alfred Mallory Edgar. Mr. Clower displayed several of the historical items that belonged to Captain Edgar, and that have been passed down through his family. Among those items were prominent sections of the original handwritten manuscript of Captain Edgar, which we were honored to publish as My Reminiscences of the Civil War.
They Called Me Shep
A new autobiography by Charles E. Sutton
In this book “Shep” is extremely open about his life, growing up in West Virginia, his time in the military, his various international adventures during the Cold War, working at the Green Bank observatory, his many friends, and his family. This is definitely the story of a man pitted against the odds who triumphed through hard work and perseverance.
