9781596298521: The Adventures of Riverboat John: Glimpses of Huntsville in the 1950's (American Chronicles)

For years, “Riverboat John” Ferguson has captivated audiences the world over as a guitar pickin’, song singin’, storytellin’ original. Now, for the first time ever, you can take home Riverboat’s strolling song and story act in this collection of boyhood hijinks, long lost traditions and unmistakable southern charm. Born on the blue-collar banks of the Tennessee River in Huntsville, Alabama, Ferguson’s homespun memories are sure to resonate with anyone who remembers life in the 1950s. Read about the time he took a wrong turn and drove his first pickup truck into the Elk River, his first―disastrous―attempt at eating barbeque chicken with silverware, the day television came to town, the time he “left home on a train” and so many more. So settle in, kick up your feet and enjoy this one-of-a-kind glimpse into Huntsville in the 1950s from the man heralded by The New York Times as “a true American minstrel.” Just don’t say nothin’ bad about Gene Autry!

“Riverboat John” Ferguson grew up in Huntsville, Alabama, and received his first banjo at age 5. After graduation from Huntsville High School, he moved to Greenwich Village, New York, to join the Folk Revival Movement, where he mingled with the avante garde, folk, blues, jazz, pop, gospel, and rock performers of the day. He completed his degree from George Washington University, served in the U.S. Army, traveled the world and the rivers of America, and rode on every paddlewheel boat he could find. He is currently touring North America with the “Riverboat John” Community Concert Stage Show, highlighting his one-man-show “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Riverboat John,” as well as numerous educational projects with schools and universities. He is working with The Big Read Program in communities and his imaginative reading, creative writing, and character education programs have been implemented in many areas throughout the United States. His concentration is currently with reading and literacy programs for urban and rural children and adults.
