A coming of age story before the time is right, this first-person colloquial-speak story brings you deeply into redneck Florida of the 1950s. Engaging and amusing at times, repulsive and horrifying at others, the story takes you through a 10 year old boy's first summer away from home with his near-legendary wild man uncle. Mikey worships uncle Cotton and strives hard for acceptance into his "old boy's club." Many adventures bring Mikey intense experiences, terrifying to ridiculous. In this man's ...more

This was a pure delight to read! It brought back so many childhood happy events, memories and sorrows! First boat ride, fishing trip,camping trip,animal love and endurances of their passing! I found myself laughing out loud so badly that tears were just streaming down my face! The ending wasn't what I expected and yet, "welcome to the real world"!
Didn’t take long for 10-year old Mikey to get the redneck in him after being with Uncle Cotton for a very short time. There was more in store for him than the camping trip Cotton just told the sheriff he, his friend Jimbo, and Mikey were about to embark on. Mikey had no idea what poachin’ was and he didn’t dare ask and risk looking stupid. Although the sheriff and game wardens were having a tough time catching Cotton in the act, they knew he was pretty much always up to something.
