The Man Who Lived on Main Street: Stories By and About Sol Schulman (Paperback)
Nineteen year-old Sol Schulman opened his dry goods store at the height of the Depression in a tiny town in the mountains of western North Carolina. Seventy years later he retired. Along the way, he was so loved by the community that he was presented an honorary degree from the nearby university and was surprised with Sol Schulman Day at the Methodist church. Here are stories collected from him and his customers about the town, the store, and the legacy of a Jewish merchant in Appalachia. These stories present a heartwarming look at a bygone era of customer service and community involvement.
