Run With the Horsemen

by Ferrol Sams

A boy’s account of growing up through the rituals of life on an ancestral farm in middle Georgia between the big wars

A boy’s account of growing up through the rituals of life on an ancestral farm in middle Georgia between the big wars. It is a rueful, humorous story of the people in one rural county, but the telling cuts so deep it breaks through to the universal. Reminiscent of To Kill a Mockingbird, Tom Sawyer, and The Catcher in the Rye, Run With the Horsemen is the powerfully moving and delightfully endearing story of Porter Osborne Jr.’s journey to adulthood.
