Introduction

Experience the resourceful spirit of Clyde McCulley as he explores in memory his humble but adventurous childhood in rural Arkansas in the 1940s and 50s. Though flavored with the hickory smoke of a southern upbringing, McCulley's juvenile innocence and sense of wonder capture universal mysteries and dreams of childhood as he comes to terms with family, friends, and faith in the segregated south. With wit and heartfelt gratitude, McCulley the boy ponders the most profound of human questions while celebrating the warmth of belonging, the joys of freedom, and the simple pleasures of life.
