Download Brother Riggs: Based on a True Story The authors grandfather, Riggs Yarbrough, lives through two world wars and the great depression, but that cannot compare to the tragic circumstances regarding his family life.

    The fire and brimstone preacher credits his trust in God to pull him through. At times Riggs feels guilty for leaving farming chores to his wife and children, but he continues to travel through the Arkansas countryside preaching the gospel. Sometimes by horse and wagon, but most of the time walking doing what the Lord wants for his life. He faces members of his congregation who object to him for speaking in tongues.
