OVERVIEW: ( FROM AMAZON)
Narrated in real time by characters in the drama, Riding the Fantastics is about the death and the life of Boy Man Hardin, last King of the Crackers in south Georgia's old herding culture. This is the second of Oscar Patton's Satilla County novels and is both a murder mystery and a story of love, courage, and the triumph of the human spirit. Multiple twists and turns take the reader on a romp through a murder investigation, a revenge plot, and revelations about character and paternity. Who was the legendary Boy Man Hardin--cowboy, lover, devoted friend, formidable adversary? Who were these people, these Georgia Crackers?
I thought the book RIDING THE FANTASTICS was a wonderful book. The author writes about changes based in Southern Georgia. The author captures your interest through the characters. The book is narrated in real time by the characters.and is presented in the present tense. The story is about Boy Man Hardin who is the last King of the Crackers.This is a murder mystery. The author tries to bring the past back. I think this is the reason the book drew me to it. The past should never be forgotten, especially the people. I hope this author doesn't quit writing. He has .a great talent. The book is more geared to the male gender but women would like it too. Even if you are not a southerner, you will love the southern atmosphere as it truly is.
I would give this book 5 STARS.
