This collection is about the joy of being alive. It's about the taste of beer and fresh-baked bread, the magic of the shimmering summer sun dancing on the surface of a river. It's about that timeless river of liquid gold that stimulates and illuminates our lives. It is about love, laughter, beauty, courage, friendship, hope, defiance, despair, mystery, discovery, innocence, kudzu, companionship, faith, justice, war and peace.

About the Author:

John R. Cooke grew up in the rural South during the 1940s and 50s. He closely observed the birth of rock-n-roll and the societal tsunami precipitated by Brown v the Board of Education. His was a world of gracious tradition, a world of snake and mosquito infested swamps?a world of great pride and great shame. It was a world of countless humming and spinning cotton gins, soul-soothing southern hospitality, a myriad of ramshackled sharecropper shacks, and innumerable little signs saying, ?whites only.? As a young man Cooke was well acquainted with the land of revivals, honky-tonks, fish-camps, dirt roads, horses, dogs, and guns.
