Overview

Seventy year old Clay Morgan and two of his sons are taking a three thousand mile, cross country road trip mostly down Route 66, to his third son's wedding.

Making a deal with their father, Dad will tell stories if they seek his favorite snack...microwave pigskins. He weaves a Christian based comic romance where a devoted Klansman and his daughter fall in love with people they shouldn't. There is a California town called Opportunity, where people are crazy about their pigs, a young pastor finds love for the first time, and lives are changed when God places a Ray Charles CD in the cafe juke box.

Through it all, Dad becomes a hero when he gives a heart-felt wedding toast to the newlywed couple and influences an in-law to stand up for himself. However, he creates unforgiving enemies by expressing a negative opinion at the rehearsal dinner.

    A Humorous Account of a Father's Love

    Clay Morgan Wilson IV relates a lifetime of fond and loving memories in his book "Mush." This is a rollicking tale of a trip across country with two of his sons, Clay V and Jonathan to attend the wedding of his third son, Sean. Their plan was to follow route 66 stopping along the way to have a "whole bunch of fun." A Gary Grant double feature in Barstow, a stop at Wigwam village in Arizona, time spent on Central Avenue in Albuquerque, the stop at "Route 66 Antiques," in Texas, Rogers Memorial in Oklahoma, Graffiti Bridge in Kansas, and the Gateway Arch in St. Louis all encouraged a lot of Kodak Moments but put the trio way behind on their 3,000 mile drive. The entire book is filled with humorous antidotes, typical family conversations, sentimental reminisces, and made up "stories" retold at his son's requests. These were stories Clay V, Jonathan, and Sean had heard and been a part of throughout their childhood. I found that Wilson's book allowed me to relive many of my personal memories related to experiences while raising my own four sons. "Mush" is rich in down home humor, exemplifies family love, with an emphasis on Christian core values, and character. Wilson's writing is an inspiration to father's to create a closer relationship with their sons. Don't expect "classic literary style" but be assured of heart warming humor and poignant nostalgia. A complementary review copy of the book was provided by a representative of the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. As reviewed for Midwest Book Review
