Memoirs of Rex L. Wilson
On or about November 1, an important historical book of memoirs entitled, Out East of Aline: An Adoption Memoir, by Rex L. Wilson, former resident of Alfalfa County will be released by the Uncommon Buffalo Press, Rapid City South Dakota. The book details day-to-day life of a young boy, adopted during the Great Depression by a hard-working farmer and wife, and how he learns to adapt, not only to his early abandonment by his widowed mother who, unable to care for him, must leave him at an orphanage, but also to life with his new family. Wilson is careful to give credit to friends, neighbors, and teachers and to his participation in activities at a country school called Round Grove School.
