I loved the stories--it made me laugh--it made me cry. I couldn't put it down, and I only hope there is a sequel. It is a slice of Americana at it's very, very best.
Thank you Mr. Jackson for writing such a thought provoking, yet feel-good book.
In the vast throng of books published each day, it can be hard to pick out those that are truly remarkable, whose words leave the page to touch the soul. This is one of them.
Starting late in the great depression and going through the late 50's, we see what life was like for young Bill Ray and everybody in the small town in Missouri, as well to look at life on the road for a family that worked a carnival.
This is a must read for ALL ages.
