About the Book
JOSEPH TURNER INSCOE (1870–1961) was a surveyor, a farmer, a North Carolina state senator, a loving husband and devoted father of six. But underlying all of this was his rich personal life as poet and writer.
This small book is a collection of most of his surviving poems and personal writings, gathered here with hope that they may teach and inspire the ever-growing generations of Joseph Turner Inscoe’s descendants.
I'm a fellow lucky enough to have relatives and friends who value their family's history, as well as understanding how valuable their own life experiences might be to their descendants. Over the years, I have compiled and edited a number of their memoirs (and now a recipe collection!) into book form, using traditional desktop publishing applications and printing procedures. I hope one day to compile my own collection of stories about my career in the theater, film and tv studios, and "on location."
