About this item

Engaging and inspirational with just the right hint of humor, I Remember Highway 80 harkens back to an earlier, simpler time in the nation’s history, before the interstate highway system wreaked its havoc on small-town living, when drive-in movie theaters were all the rage, and evenings still ended with a quick spin around the courthouse square. Lacy’s coming-of-age collection chronicles his upbringing in postwar Marshall, Texas, as he navigates the death of his father, high school, and eventually, the Marines. Brimming with nostalgia, I Remember Highway 80 tackles the merits of Gene Autry and Roy Rogers, as well as Friday night football, Saturday matinees, and brand new cars. Dedicated to his mother, Lacy shares her struggles and triumphs as an independent, single mother in the 1940s and their journey to make a home for themselves.
