Shoal Creek
by Lanny Bledsoe




Overview -

In 1929 fifteen-year-old Rep Doe runs away from his abusive sharecropper home in south Georgia in the dark of night with nothing more than the clothes on his back.

For four years he wanders the wilderness, surviving on fish and squirrels and picking up work on small farms. During these hard years he develops new skills and learns about life and women.

He eventually finds himself at Shoal Creek Farm, the largest bootlegger outfit on the Chattahoochee river, owned by the ruthless and violent Red Hogan. Rep knows Red and his son, Brit, will be trouble, but with a harsh winter approaching he fights for a job to keep himself warm. Little does he know how much his life is about to change.

At Shoal Creek he meets three women, Lila, Bess and Star. All would be part of his life. Two he would love; one he would marry, and the one with the morals of an alley cat would affect his life for years to come.

So begins a story of coming of age, romance, and the harshness of life in The Great Depression.
