A Mill Village Story

Some brief overview of book

A Mill Village Story is the record of one man's upbringing in a place and time that is quickly vanishing. A quintessentially American small town, West Point, Georgia is a place defined by its local industry-a world-class textile mill run by the West Point Pepperell corporation-and adherence to traditional Southern values of congeniality, manners, and friendliness. Everyone author Gerald Andrews knew or even just rubbed shoulders with worked at the mill, and it was Andrews's experiences there that would take him from relative poverty to the corporate boardroom.

A Mill Village Story is an account of Andrews's early years, his rapid rise to leadership in various textile firms, and the special character of the village that shaped him. How does a young man go from night watchman to corporate sales in a matter of years? A Mill Village Story offers some explanation.

Creativity and kindness set him on the right path, those characteristics nurtured in him by family members and the mill community. Gerald Andrews also quickly gained a reputation as a problem-solver-even at the lowest position at the mill-and for recognizing the importance of every employee, no matter their rank. This compassion for his employees contributed to his success.

In A Mill Village Story, a lifetime of wisdom comes to file, with Andrews peppering his tale with the homegrown philosophies he developed from the unique social relationships he enjoyed growing up. Add to the mix personal encounters with Southern characters like country psychic Mayhayley Lancaster and A Mill Village Story becomes a memorable time capsule that serves as a portrait of a uniquely American place.
