Moonshine, Trains, and Red Clay Roads
Levi, the son of a sharecropper in rural South Georgia and raised in the 1920s and 1930s, was accustomed to having very little. Now, he found himself facing a situation he could never have imagined. A trip across the country with one of his sisters and her husband sounded thrilling. He had never been out of Georgia when, suddenly, he found himself stranded in a small Texas town with nothing but the clothes on his back. He didn't know which was more devastating: his lost and penniless situation or being abandoned by someone he loved and who, he thought, loved him. At sixteen, alone in a strange new world, he faces one unthinkable situation after another. But he was going home to Alma by whatever means necessary and plant his feet so deeply in that red Georgia clay that he would never move again!
