Hollandale, Intro:

I've been working on a survey of Hollandale, the little Delta town where I lived and taught while in the Teacher Corps. Having been in the Peace Corps, and by virtue of having successful, globetrotting parents and grandparents, I've been exceptionally lucky to have lived and traveled all over the world. And yet, of all the wonderful places I've been, it is this little, dying, Delta town that keeps pulling me back. As Hemingway said of Paris, "it is the place I love above all else." Maybe this will help explain it...
