Full Book synopsis/summary:

This is a coming-of-age story about a group of boys growing up in West Memphis, Arkansas, in the ‘60s and early ‘70s. The trees become the proverbial Woodlawn Giants, watching over these kids as they grow up, embark on adventures, and take on neighborhood adversaries while learning about life in all its joys and pains.

It’s a story that embodies the “it takes a village” mentality that built the world of their little neighborhood and raised the children in it. From fishing at Tunica Lake or trying to jump the Ten-Mile Bayou, the boys’ memories live on while the pine trees still stand.


“Although we have experienced some of our friends passing, the memories live on, and the trees are still standing.”

“We may have sounded different when we talked and used different words, but we were family, and that trumped everything.”

“People are different, and that’s okay.”
