Description

Who could have guessed that humble beginnings in Marble Falls, Texas, could have turned into a successful career, a multi-million-dollar business, and a whirlwind life of joy and heartbreak? The Long Road Up from Marble Falls is Steve Petty's autobiographical account of his life journey, from his early childhood days in Marble Falls, picking cotton with his two brothers in the summer sun and enjoying his mother's homemade biscuits, to his time in the Navy, to the development of his career as a successful salesman and later business owner. But his story is also one of love and loss. Petty details his first marriage, the birth of his three children, Kyle, Kurt, and Kristi, along with the demise of his first marriage. He then goes on to tell the tale of finding love again with his wife, Rosie, and the birth of his fourth child, Jason. From his hectic life as a salesman, which involved frequent moves, new homes, and life adjustments, to mourning the sudden death of Rosie's daughter, Shannon, Petty reveals life's twists and turns, marked by obstacles, tragedies, and disappointments. His experiences speak to persevering through the storms and always looking at life with a "can do" attitude. About the Author Steve Petty resides in Bradenton, Florida, with his wife, Rosie, where they enjoy traveling the world with friends and fishing. They also enjoy baseball games with the Bradenton Marauders, a "Class A Advanced" minor league team for the Pittsburgh Pirates.
