Ramblings On Rock Springs Road

Book Online

Meet local author Gilbert Gordon at Oaklands Mansion on Sunday, October 9th at 2:00PM. You are invited to join us to hear short stories from Gordon’s 2021 book “Ramblings on Rock Springs Road.”

Gilbert Harrison Gordon spent the first half of his sixty years on his family dairy farm in Southern Rutherford County. The last thirty-plus years have seen him turn to teaching as his vocation. He and his wife, Ginny, founded Cedar Hill School on a part of the family farm in 1991 and were privileged to teach their children while they taught others. Teaching still brings them both joy and purpose as they continue their “ramblings” on Rock Springs Road.

Gilbert attended The Webb School where he caught his love for writing. ‘Ramblings’ centers around the farming community on Rock Springs Road. Stories include peach pie redemption, a serial killer during the 1920s, the Civil War spy Kate Patterson (his great, great aunt) and the struggles of a boy coming of age on a southern rural road.

“If you don’t believe that a memoir of growing up on a farm could be entertaining, I dare you to read this book. I loved it! Ramblings is colorful, very funny and almost as hard to put down as a spy thriller. The writing is superb, crafted with skill and care that would impress even a Pulitzer Prize jury.”
–Charles P. Alexander — former editor Time Magazine
