About-

From drinking sweet tea on a beloved grandmother’s porch to playing army to witnessing prejudice and violence or receiving the lash, these stories illustrate growing up in the South during the 1950s and 1960s, what it felt, tasted, and looked like through the eyes of the boys who lived it.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“A great collection of stories! Entertaining and nostalgic. Illustrates the realities of small town youth . . . in many ways Americana! I saw myself in some of these recollections!”

—Dwain Walden, author of From My Back Porch



“Growing Up South of the Mason-Dixon Line
takes me right back to my childhood. . . . The stories give insight into boys growing up during the 1950s and 1960s . . . a must read for anyone who grew up during that era.”

—Jeffery Walker, University of Alabama at Birmingham



“Writing with an economy of words that weave together memories of a southern upbringing, the authors . . . take us on a journey from the halls of grammar school through a summer adventure, later cruising the streets of Nashville, and finally to an early teaching stint influenced by a love that only a grandmother can reflect. These life-affirming stories are as honest as they are heartwarming.”

—Mark Rutledge, columnist, Close to Home
