Decent Coming of Age Story

This is an interesting, "decent" (aka no gratuitous sex or violence) story of a young man who came of age in the bayou country at a time when steamships plied the rivers and lakes of the great South. Narrated expertly by George Guidall, it is an engaging saga of youth-to-manhood during the late 1890's. It is told in a narrative style, taking listeners back to the day, offering a delightful tale with heroes and villains who will surprise and amaze. I enjoyed this one -- it was an easy listen -- and learned a bit about that era, the art of gleaning pearls from mussels, and steamer history.
