This book is a memoir of Enid Haney Barber

My name is Enid Haney Barber. I am a niece of Mabel Stark, (Mary Haynie). I have proof of this. Robert Hough's book is a novel. It is only loosely about Mabe Stark. He really trashed Aunt Mabel. There is another book which is the true autiobiography of Mabel Stark called "Hold That Tiger" by Mabel Stark and Gertrude Orr. It is a factual autiobiography. It can be found on ebay, but the price is exhorbitant unless you are a true collector. Not many copies are left. I have one, and my children have one, but we would not part with them for any amount of money.

Our family contacted Mr. Hough about the novel about Aunt Mabel, but he plainly states all through the book that it is a novel. It had been leased to someone to produce a movie, but the funding fell through, and that is not going to happen right now.

My book, "Cotton Fields" covers some items about Aunt Mabel, but not extensively.
