Yazoo County native Gene Harlan Powell will sign copies of his book, Fisher of Men: The Motorcycle Ministry of Herb Shreve, Saturday at Downtown Marketplace from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. By JAMIE PATTERSON
When Yazoo native Gene Harlan Powell traveled with Herb Shreve on the highways and byways of America, he didn’t see the legendary biker by his side.
Herb was considered famous, maybe even a celebrity, with the establishment of the global Christian Motorcyclists Association. Leaving home with $17 and his wife’s blessing, Shreve’s call led to a global ministry in all 50 states and 30 countries worldwide.
Powell knew him as a lifelong friend who enjoyed freedom and sharing the Good News with complete strangers, vagabonds and others. And he was a man who would stop anywhere for a hot plate of fried chicken.
“The guy I rode with was plain Herb,” Powell said.
Powell has documented Shreve’s journey with his new book, Fisher of Men: The Motorcycle Ministry of Herb Shreve.
