Bobby Jack Nelson's masterpiece (caveat - I haven't read "A Day in the Life of My Brilliant Little Mind").

It's the story of a kid with his dad and their mules who make a living lumberjacking, and the kid has something to prove at the pull at the county fair.

The last few chapters of the book hit me square in the chest. It was one of those amazing "here's what great writing can do" moments where I couldn't talk or move because of the emotional impact.

Please seek out this book and read it - it dese
