About this title


Along a five-mile stretch of creek that runs through East Sheridan Community lives a proud band of misfits who just want to fit into society. Brought to life in a collection of twelve short stories, the scrappy Creekers" work hard to put food on their tables. But even as they face a harsh reality, the Creekers occasionally dare to dream of another life. Reverend Jones, a pillar of peace and harmony that unites East Sheridan Community, is competing in an annual charity race against notorious tough guy Roy Dean Youngblood for a lucrative prize. But after the race concludes, Youngblood surprises Jones with a prize he never expected. Dixie Hawthorne, the girl of Larry Kincad's high school dreams, has been living in the fifties for the past twenty-five years. When Larry meets her, he too is transported back in time. Chilled to the bones on tradin' night, young Billy Wesley finally summons the courage to set things straight in his dysfunctional family. In this charming collection of short tales set in the rural Midwest, a poor, hardworking class of people from the wrong side of the creek learns to embrace all life has to offer with passion, determination, and hope"
