Octavo, softbound (slick, photo. illus. stiff wrappers), 123 pp. From lower cover: For years, ÒRiverboat JohnÓ 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. Raised on the blue-collar banks of the Tennessee River in Hutsville, 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 barbecue chicken with silverware, the day television came to town, the time he Òleft home on a trainÓ 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 Òa true American minstrel.Ó Just don't say nothin' bad about Gene Autry!
