(1 Ratings)
Price: $0.99
What was Houston like 60 years ago? See Houston through the eyes of a white boy growing up from 1951 to 1963 in Jim Crow, segregated Houston as it faced government mandated integration. Fish for crawdads on the bayou, ride horses in Hermann Park, swim at Crystal Pool and try your luck at the Playland Park shooting gallery with real .22 rifles. Attend Montrose Elementary School on West Main, long since torn down. Listen to the ghosts that still inhabit that piece of ground. Live through Hurricane Carla in '61. Duck and cover in panic as the air raid sirens wail during the Cuban Missile Crisis in '62. See the police dogs and fire hoses break up the chain-ins at Woolworths downtown, smell the unique fragrance of Foleys and go see a movie at the Trail Drive-In, replaced by the Astrodome, now also a distant memory. 500 pages of Houston's roots and the changes it underwent. A novel of indisputable truth and accuracy!
