Eleven-year-old Lucas Priest is persuaded by Boon Hogganbeck, one of his family's retainers, to steal his grandfather's car and make a trip to Memphis. The priests' black coachman, Ned McCaslin, stows away, and the three of them are off on a heroic odyssey, for which they are ill-equipped, that ends at Miss Reba's bordello in Memphis. From there, a series of wild misadventures ensues - involving horse smuggling, trainmen, sheriff's deputies, and jail.

    "4 days in the life of an eleven year old"

    Like Hemingway with one day in the life of an old man at sea, your intrest in the four days spent in this novel is held from begining to end. Life lessons learned.Enjoyable.

    "Boring"

    Don't waste your time and money. If I could give this less than 1 star, I would.
