This book is the story of three boys who lived in the late fifties and how they lived without electronic gadgets of any kind. They came from low income families. Television had just hit the market in black and white form and that was all they had. They built their own toys and made up their own games because money was scarce but they never felt they were poor. Their playground was The Big Woods as they called it along the banks of the Broad River where they found many adventures in the summer of ’53.
