Listen as Dee Brown weaves humorous, richly detailed stories of his early years as a youthful entrepreneur and teenaged newspaperman. Oil Booms and Flimflammers is about America's booming 20s seen through the eyes of a 12-year-old boy, including Brown's own hilarious foray into entrepreneurship. Teenaged Printer and Fledgling Journalist follows Brown after high school, when he learned the printer's trade, rudiments of journalism, and the mysteries of employer-employee relations at a small Ozark newspaper. In How Not to Report a Tornado, Brown is pressed into service as a teenaged reporter, sifts through rubble for tornado victims, and then rushes back to the newspaper office to compose his story directly on an old Linotype. With Encounter with the Newton County Law, Brown finds himself spending the night in Newton County's one-cell jail. The charge: bank robbery! For Adults and Young Adults
