About Lavator "Vader" Sutton

"In addition to working at the Unagusta furniture factory, Vader worked his land. He kept honey bees, coaxed tomatoes and tobacco to grow from the stony ground and moved stiff-legged from a life-time of walking behind the plow. My favorite story of Vader is from his childhood. When Vader and his siblings would set out on the five-mile walk to school, it was very early in the morning and still cold. To warm their bare feet they'd shoo cows from their sleeping spots to stand on the bovine-warmed ground." (1)
