For years, 'Riverboat John' Ferguson has captivated audiences the world over as a guitar pickin', song singin', storytellin' original. Now, for the first time ever, you can take home Riverboat's strolling song-and-story act in this collection of boyhood hijinks, long-lost traditions and unmistakable southern charm. Raised on the blue-collar banks of the Tennessee River in Huntsville, Alabama, Ferguson's homespun memories are sure to resonate with anyone who remembers life in the 1950s. Read about the time he took a wrong turn and drove his fi rst pickup truck into the Elk River, his first-disastrous-attempt at eating barbecue chicken with silverware, the day television came to town, the time he left home on a train and so many more. So settle in, kick up your feet and enjoy this one-of-a-kind glimpse into Huntsville in the 1950s from the man heralded by the New York Times as 'a true American minstrel.' Just don't say nothin' bad about Gene Autry!
