In the very first page you are transported to Arkansas in 1952. The graphic prose vividly portrays the trials and tribulations of a 7 year old boy, an only child, living with parents and grandparents, on a farm in the cotton belt. Luke Chandler's dream of, one day, playing for the Cardinals, is way off in the future. This, and the ending, when Luke and his parents forsake the back-breaking toil and uncertainty of farming life, for a new venture in Michigan, leads one to think that there must be a sequel to this wonderful story. Maybe there is already, if so, please let me know!
