  1. At a time when we are questioning our reverence for Confederate history, this book brings to light the heart of Confederate humility and loyalty.This is a story of a young man, Will Tweedy, as he sorts out family values, community prejudices, Christian assumptions, and his hope for the future in a changing society.Will shares with us his dreams, his pranks, his mourning of a best friend, the loss of his grandmother, his being the first young man in his community to drive an automobile, and his f [...]


  2. I can hardly believe this book isn t widely known I class it alongside Tom Sawyer as a true picture of turn of the century southern literature But there is so much to this book The story is told from the perspective of a 14 year old boy growing up in a small town in Georgia Each character is portrayed with such depth and understanding and humor that I really felt I knew and cared for them as individuals There are many life lessons explored in this book, but it is not preachy, which I appreciate [...]


  3. I enjoyed this book but take issue with the representation of the black characters While the author uses occasional vernacular from the white characters, the narrator says he corrected the language in general This did not apply to the black characters whose language was caricature when compared to the white characters corrected language.

  6. This book was for a book club or I never would have read it all It was the weirdest, discombobulated thing I have ever read Made b me feel like it was making fun of southern back woods small town folks in the worst way Sorry to the author but it was a waste of my time.


  7. I wasn t sure I was going to be able to wade through all the Southern dialect at first but it was well worth the initial effort I soon got into the flow and started reading through the dialect quickly and fluently It s a charming story a slice of Southern life around the turn of the century and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
