Written by a gentleman that I sometimes play golf with, NORVEL: An American Hero by Kenneth Conklin, is about a Olympic Gold Medalist from rural southwest Virginia.  I enjoyed the read and couldn’t resist plugging a friend’s book!  UPDATE:  There will soon be a historical marker along US 220 thanks to the awareness raised by this book. UPDATE: Norvel’s Historical Marker was unveiled on September 17, 2022.
