|About the Book|
During Doug Underwoods life, he worked at the Nashville banner, the Columbia Daily Herald, WLAC-TV and WSM-TV. He also worked for Bill Brock, Nat Winson and Winfield Dunn. He started his own weekly community newspaper, The Westview, in the Bellevue area of Nashville in 1978. After joining a local writers group, he started writing the stories I had grown up hearing about. They were stories about his early days working as a news photographer and reporter. He wrote about covering the burning of the Maxwell House Hotel and helping police catch an illegal abortionist. He also wrote about covering a tragic, well-publicized murder as well as other more humorous incidents during his career.
