In this soul-piercing memoir, David McKain penetrates the secret world of a poor boy coming of age on his own in "God's Country," a small oil-drilling town in the Allegheny Mountains during the 1940s and 1950s. His devoutly religious parents, overwhelmed by their own struggles, relinquished their son's upbringing to the town and the wooded slopes that encircled it.

Growing Up in God’s Country is unabashedly evangelistic He has also composed instrumentals for guitar, and has published a book of Irish and Scottish instrumental music that he arranged for classical string trio (violin, viola and cello).

Growing Up in God’s Country is unabashedly evangelistic. It shows the amazing ways in which God moves in everyday lives. He has also composed instrumentals for guitar, and has published a book of Irish and Scottish instrumental music that he arranged for classical string trio (violin, viola and cello). That book is called Celtic Treasures for String Trio (Piney Ridge, 2005). He plays and arranges guitar music almost exclusively in the CGDGAD tuning. That tuning, developed by English guitarist Dave Evans in the 1960’s, is also a Hawaiian slack-key tuning called "C Ni'ihau" tuning.

The author relates his memories of growing up in the 1940s and 1950s in the Allegheny Mountains as the son of a churchless Methodist minister and a fifth-grade schoolteacher
