KIRKUS REVIEW

A rather amusing story of the upheaval in the lives of the shanty boat people. Old Newt, his son F, and Ernie's wit, Pearl, when Pearl defies Ernie's wanderlust and goes off on her own. Entertaining pictures of life along the Mississippi, the river folk in their joys and sorrows, a blend of picaresque-marital-Americana. For those who like authentic pictures of a new phase of Southern life, without grimness or sordidness.
