NEW BOOK EDITED BY HARLAN OGLE
"I'M JUST A PEACEFUL MAN
LOOKING FOR A PEACEFUL PLACE"
-The Poems And Songs Of Donald Ferguson-
I've just completed a project that I've worked on for some months.
As a teenager, I remember Donnie, Anne's son, staying at our home in Columbia, Tennessee. Mama helped to care for
him for some time.
When he later went to Toledo, I lost contact with him for years. In 1985, he was killed in an automobile accident.
While visiting recently with Donnie's Mom, she allowed me to have access to many of Donnie's poems and songs.
I did some light editing of the poems for publication and placed 16 of his original songs on a CD.
The book is entitled "I'M JUST A PEACEFUL MAN LOOKING FOR A PEACEFUL PLACE."
The CD is placed in a sleeve in the back of the book.
I understand that the book will only have limited appeal but it is something that needs to be circulated among Donnie's
family and friends.
If you are interested in obtaining a copy of the book and CD, please email me.

a decade. The column entitled, "A Monticello Minister's Musings" appears weekly. There are readers in many states
and some of the "musings" have been printed in several national magazines. "MY KENTUCKY WORLD" is a collection of fifty
of the most popular columns. The chapters include: "Good Women I've Known"---"Woman Kills Local Preacher"---"Pistol
Packin' Preacher"---"Married Life, How Sweet It Is"---"What In Hell Do You Want?"---and "I Ain't No Dummy."
There are 126 pages in the book and it sells for $9.95 plus $4.00 Postage and Handling.
"DEEP ROOTS AND RICH HISTORY" takes the reader on a journey back into time when the nation was populated with people
called "pioneers." Located in south central Kentucky, along the banks of the Cumberland River, is a community with a
legacy that invites the historian to come and "sit a spell." Wayne County with its county seat, Monticello is brimming
with stories that caputre the imagination.
Chapters include: "Indian Tales of Chief Doublehead"---"The Continuing Saga Of Revolutionary Soldiers"---"The Untimely
Death Of A Confederate General"---"The Last Stagecoach Run East Of The Mississippi"---"Death By Hanging"---and "Prisoners
There are 156 pages in the book and it sells for $9.95 plus $4.00 Postage and Handling.
In "THE SPIRIT OF THE AMERICAN DOUGHBOY"--A History Of The "Doughboy" Memorial In Monticello, Kentucky, I attempt to
show the emotions and events that led to the erection of the famous World War I memorial by the talented and gifted sculptor,
Ernest Moore Viquesney.
The history of Monticello and Wayne County, Kentucky, is full of heroic acts by men and women who have served in the
military. This volumn will convey to the reader a greater love of country and the efforts Americans make to provide
appropriate memorials for her soldier heros.
