Written with introspection and a remarkable degree of candor, readers will make of it what they will. Almost incidentally, the reader is introduced to the sights, sounds, and tastes the rural South and the environments in which the author lived. Always interesting and sometimes controversial, he asks the reader to judge kindly.
