In his preschool days,
Samuel Earl (Boyyer)
Wilson, III was taught
by his grandmother,
father, mother, sisters
and nursery teacher, a
retired school teacher,
how to read, write, think and fi gure. When he
entered real public school in his fi rst year, he was
miles ahead of his peers. He was reading while
they were learning their A, B, C’s.
He stayed ahead of others until he attended
Morehouse college. Then he fell behind. Eventually
he caught up and graduated.
As an X athlete, he earned letters in basketball
and football in high school, Springfi eld High in
Hattiesburg, Mississippi. He also earned four letters
in football at Morehouse College and played one
year of semi/ professional football while serving in
the military at Fort Huachuca, Arizona. Even then
he continued to read as his pre school teachers had
impinged upon him to do in his youth. Recently he
has read three books by other authors and again -
The Possum Hunter- by himself.
This book is a gift for the Young, regardless of their
ages. (8 to 88 ).
