New-to-the-trilogy readers are brought up to speed easily. THE SCUMMERS opens with a flashback to the ending of book two, SCREAMING WITH THE CANNIBALS. It's 1956 and a blazing hot day in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The Sheriff is through fooling around with obstinate young Jesse and "goes postal." His final assult launches Jesse, naked and battered, from the hood of his patrol car and into the next county.
Jesse's crime? This blond white boy from West Virginia dared befriend local blacks. He even hung-out on the tiny segregated area of the beach "reserved" for them.
Forcefully ejected from the Deep South, young Jesse has no place in mind to go, no money, no friends, no plan. Disallusioned, he heads west.
Over the next eight years Jesse tries to figure out who he is and
where he wants to be. He rules out college, flop houses, jails, hospital
beds, big cities,farms,the United States Army,and his home town, Crum, West Virginia.
While figuring this out he survives brawls, scheming women, and deadly military and civilian situations, all described in horrific detail by the master of knock-down-drag-out fiction,Lee Maynard.
At the novel's end, Jesse still has roads to travel, boats to build, and motorcycles to ride.
