This book is a wonderful trip through the life of one of the most famous square dance callers in the world. The stories are in Flippo’s own words, and include many of his experiences, friends, and travels. It is a great read about a very common, uncommon man. ~Jerry Junck

“This is truly an unfiltered conversation between Larada, the author, and our beloved friend we called ,”Flip”. We enjoyed the book’s colorful insights into what shaped the unique character, mentor, and friend we all came to know and love.” ~Mike & Lisa Seastrom

“Such a GREAT book! Larada truly brings the spirit of Flip to the page. You’ll laugh, then you’ll cry and then you’ll laugh some more. It will always be my honor to call him, “Friend.” To those of us who knew and loved him, he’ll never be, “just another square dance caller.” ~Tony Oxendine

Why is this an authorized version? I had Flippo’s permission to do it, and I spent over 40 hours in interviews to gather the information.

Our dear Marshall Flippo passed away on November 4, 2018. He so wanted to be able to read his biography. You have two choices for paper: hard back or paper back. For an e-book version, choose Kindle, iBook, Nook or Kobo.
