This chapter focuses on the story of William Rohl Bright, or Bill Bright, who was born to parents Forrest Dale and Mary Lee Rohl Bright. As a child, Bill's main activities were ranching and reading. Bill's first chores were collecting eggs and gathering dry corncobs and wood to heat the family's stove. Throughout Bill's entire childhood, the ranch did not have electricity, but running water was provided by a windmill that pumped water into an elevated tank, from which it was fed by gravity into the house. As he grew older, Bill “took his place alongside his four brothers and other hired men in milking the cows, feeding the hogs, caring for the horses and cattle, working in the fields, plowing, cultivating, harvesting, threshing the grain, and baling hay for the cattle.”
