Publisher's Summary

A once-booming riverboat community, Port Caddo is a now struggling Texas town due to the emergence of the railroad. A series of incidents leads to the discovery of the first fresh water pearl, and the town is rejuvenated. Mike Blakely transports listeners to a time filled with hope in a lost little town. George Guidall’s lively narration captures every nuance of this masterfully crafted story.

    "Decent Coming of Age Story"

    This is an interesting, "decent" (aka no gratuitous sex or violence) story of a young man who came of age in the bayou country at a time when steamships plied the rivers and lakes of the great South. Narrated expertly by George Guidall, it is an engaging saga of youth-to-manhood during the late 1890's. It is told in a narrative style, taking listeners back to the day, offering a delightful tale with heroes and villains who will surprise and amaze. I enjoyed this one -- it was an easy listen -- and learned a bit about that era, the art of gleaning pearls from mussels, and steamer history.
