It is the spring of 1932 during the Great Depression. Jonathon Jackson's mother can't afford to keep him in Dallas, and as a puny twelve-year-old kid, he can't get a job. She buys him a Continental Bus ticket and sends him to East Texas to live with her parents. Through the voice of Jonathon "Sonny" Jackson, this story captures the bond between a boy and his family, a boy and his horse, and the innocence of adolescent love. Scallons genuinely depicts life during the Great Depression as one of hard work, hope and dreams. Unlike mainstream depression-era history, Scallons remembers the humor, love of God, laughter and tears with his writing set in this great time of trial for our country. Larry C. Scallons was born in the late 1920s on a cotton farm outside of Dallas, Texas. A Second World War and Korean War veteran, Scallons has lived all over Texas and travelled the world. He is a successful businessman who has written several short stories and is currently working on another novel.
