A Southern Boyhood
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Clyde Bolton has long been a dean of the Southern sportswriting community. Now this popular columnist focuses his beguiling prose on his boyhood memories in his delightful memoir, Hadacol Days. The title is taken from a high school cheer: “Statham Wildcats on the Ball, They’ve Been Drinking Hadacol.” The Statham in the cheer refers to Statham High School, Statham, Georgia, now as long gone as Hadacol, but equally effervescent in the author’s nostalgic but clearheaded look back at what life was like in small Southern towns of the 1940s and 1950s.
