Sock Monkey Life
Sock Monkey Dreams With voices alternately funny, sweet, clever, crabby, and more than a little tongue in cheek, the residents of the Red Heel Monkey Shelter, a refuge for abandoned sock monkeys, reveal a world that looks surprisingly like our own. Sock newsmonkey Benny Hathaway and socktographer Link faithfully record the life and times of their fellow Red Heel residents.

Not a children's narrative...The Sock Monkey Doll, based a true story, is set in the Appalachian Mountains where "Hittie" struggles with a boilerplate code that prescribes her life in the early 1900s. North Tazewell, a coalfield town dependent upon the N&W Railroad, is in the flux that progress brings. A tale of bigotry, betrayal, courage, determinism, and unconditional love, The Sock Monkey Doll focuses on life for women living in a culture immersed in absolutes.
Take a delightful romp back through time and see the world through the eyes of your inner child. Revisit the world in the years following the end of the Second World War, to the children of this country's "Greatest Generation," when innocence, wonder, and awe were alive and well. Go back to the days of two pieces of candy for a penny, the introduction of the Hula-Hoop, and Red Ryder BB guns, the gift that every little boy dreamed of finding beneath the Christmas tree.
