Title from cover.
In his down home way, Ezra paints a picture of small town life near Paris, Illinois, where his family sometimes changed addresses like some people change their underwear. Money is tight in those depression years, so he helps out by delivering gallons of moonshine while still in high school. Prohibition had just ended but that stuff was still illegal. Explain that to your father. He learns about the national pastime, girls, er, uh ... baseball, and gets pretty good at, uh ... both. Just how many girls does he leave behind? Then there are the cars. Lots of cars. Cheap cars. Five dollar cars. Broken down cars. Studebaker, Chevrolet, Ford, Chrysler, Buick, Oakland, and more. How many years does Ezra get away with driving before being forced to get a license? When he went to enlist in the military, the recruiter told him “I don't think you are going to make the Navy.” And this is just the beginning. With more than 100 photographs.
