Janet Godwin Meyer announces release of 640 Acres and Dirt Poor

Detailing amazing true life experiences of her family, “640 Acres and Dirt Poor” (published by AuthorHouse) by Janet Godwin Meyer proves that working hard has its great advantages, especially when the same values are passed and practiced from one generation to another.

The book narrates the story of Godwin family’s working towards a better and hopeful life, covering its three generations. Meyer tells that there was a steady improvement of their living circumstances, with Hugh Godwin setting the example of working hard and eventually accumulated 640 acres. Shug Godwin was not afraid of anybody or anything, helping many whites and blacks. The author followed their legacy.

“Shug Godwin helped many people, and he never advertised. He was always a force for good,” the author adds.

Even at today’s breathless pace for living, “640 Acres and Dirt Poor” offers a means for appreciating possible slowing.

About the Author
Janet Godwin Meyer grew up in rural Georgia in the 1950s. On her dirt road, there were four houses each a mile from the other. Gayner Williams, Meyer’s Tallapoosa high school English teacher, encouraged her to write, and with that advice forever ringing in her ear, throughout her lifetime, the author wrote and kept notes and all manner of dated papers. Now, she has written a date-correct book of pain, passion, hope and optimism.
