After a death at the White Camellia Orphanage, young Pip Tatnall leaves Lexsy, Georgia to become a road kid, riding the rails east, west, and north. A bright, unusual boy who is disillusioned at a young age, Pip believes that he sees guilt shining in the faces of men wherever he goes. On his picaresque journey, he sweeps through society, revealing the highest and lowest in human nature and only slowly coming to self-understanding. He searches the points of the compass for what will help, groping for a place where he can feel content, certain that he has no place where he belongs and that he rides the rails through a great darkness. His difficult path to collect enough radiance to light his way home is the road of a boy struggling to come to terms with the cruel but sometimes lovely world of Depression-era America.

The only remaining female in the George Nash family, Ociee chooses to view herself as more brother than sister. Her favorite outfit is soft, worn dungarees and her brother Ben's old shirt that Mama made. Ociee's hair is a wispy web of curls and, dreadfully, it usually falls in her face when her self-tied ribbons slide down her back. Her gray eyes sparkle as she delights in jumping on moving boxcars and chasing strangers who dare to wander upon her Mississippi farm. This same little tomboy also goes to great pains to cook and clean and make a home for her beloved Papa and brothers Fred and Ben. She tries valiantly to fill the hole her Mama's death has left in the family. She fingers Mama's locket and hopes the touch of it will make things better. Ociee endears herself to all while she struggles through the trauma of her mother’s funeral to finally celebrate her young life. Her eyes learn to see beyond stereotypes and traditional viewpoints as she looks into the hearts of people and finds only what is strong and joyful within them. Ociee giggles as only an innocent child can giggle; yet her youthful spirit carries what would seem to be the wisdom of an older soul. Ociee triumphs over the sadness, fear, and anxiety of the painful occurrences of her early life. In doing just that, she will bloom in a new garden and sow seeds of love in the lives of those who come to know her in a new home on Charlotte Street.

Amazing Grace: 25th Anniversary Edition

Product Format: Paperback

Price: $35.00
"Amazing Grace is a very unpretentious book-episodes in the life of a small town in W. Tennessee, related by a man, never overtly characterized but somehow growing before our eyes, in a style as clear as plate glass-glass beyond whic a reality glows, comic, sad, tender. Making no pretensions, the book accomplishes its own small, but authentic, miracle. For if we can ever see even a small segment of life clearly-that is, offered with the self-denying artistry and veracity whidh we find here-such a smimple segment, merely because its nature seems suddenly illuminated, will probably move us. And because it is life, it may well become a permanent possession. At least that has been true for me, who read it first in an early edition, some twelve or fifteen years ago." Rober Penn Warrent
