Delbert R. (Del) Caudill was born at home in Wayne County, West Virginia and grew up on Watermelon Hill near Louisa, Kentucky. He currently lives in sunny Florida with his wife Lola. Del started writing Watermelon Hill years ago, jotting down memories and stories of life of the farm growing up. His hope is that this little book will serve as a trip back home and back in time to those who grew up in the country during the forties and fifties.
“Now, just settle back in your recliner, free up your mind, let it drift back to the past and take a little trip to Watermelon Hill, in Eastern Kentucky. I can only hope you enjoy reading this book a small fraction as much as I enjoyed writing it.”
