Summary
Jim Man writes, "In 1972, being twelve was like a future unto itself. I was always in search of adventure around Greenbelt Lake, but the funny thing was that the adventures seemed to find me. The lake was a key which unlocked a treasure trove of events and characters that became permanently embedded in my soul. People like Dwight, who was picked up and carried three miles by a.tornado and lived to tell about it. And Stevie "Wander" Johnson, a nine-year-old who, like a mirage, would appear from out of nowhere riding his mini-bike. The freedom we had at the lake fueled these adventures, but freedom is a privileged rope whose length is sometimes nebulous. And boy, did we stretch it!"This sweet, reminiscent compilation of mischief and friendly mayhem captures the author's memories of his adolescent years at Greenbelt Lake in Texas. However, this book is not just for Texas natives. Man's ability to lend his tales vitality and excitement allows any reader to enjoy Greenbelt like he or she was there too -- just another visitor to the lake.
