Author C.G. Tyner, recognized for his contributions to geoscience and praised for his previous book “The Journey, Growing Up in the 40s and 50s,” once again invites readers to travel into the past with his latest release, “A Changing Road.” Tyner, now residing in the northern suburbs of Houston, Texas, along with his wife, opens an inspiring window into the everyday realities of a bygone era.
The book traces Tyner’s route from high school triumph to his college years at Baylor University, where he secured an athletic scholarship on the heels of winning the Texas State discus title in 1957. The book takes an unembellished approach to recounting his experiences, shedding light on the simplicity, fun, athletics and sometimes less glamorous aspects of college life of that era.
The book serves as a candid reflection on college life during the late 1950s and early 1960s. Tyner’s prose vividly illustrates the distinctive background of the times: women only attired in dresses, backpacks a complete unknown and on a totally segregated, peaceful, uncomplicated college campus, far removed from the inclusive yet complex, multi-environments of college life today.
Leveraging his background as a geoscientist, Tyner left no stone unturned to infuse authenticity into his prose. “A Changing Road” not only offers readers a glimpse into a life-changing phase of his life, but throughout the book, Tyner invites readers to empathize with the past, affording them to be totally absorbed in enlightening geological challenges and mysteries, presented clearly for the non-professional reader.
