Sergeant York – Last of the Long Hunters
Author: Tom Skeyhill (official biographer)
Pages: 240 – Paperback
For years we fundamentalists have challenged our young people to pattern their life after a “real man”. In Tom Skeyhill’s book “Sergeant York”, you find, near perfect form that real man we’ve been describing. We’re impressed with his great shooting ability and courage in battle, but the character that was instilled in him by his mother and father was the real agent that led to his abilities in the field. This man was fashioned first in the home. That’s where real men come from. Alvin York feared no man because he feared God. In Sergeant York is found the real American man in the truest sense. He embodies all we stand for. The integrity, hard work, nobility and manliness that shaped this nation and helped us win two world wars is demonstrated in Mr. York. When thinking of this leader of men, I think of David’s words to Solomon, “Be strong therefore, and shew thyself a man.” Every father should encourage his son to read this book. Would to God we had men like Alvin York today! I will read this book again. –From the Foreword by Evangelist Tim Lee.
