Overview

"The Train Ride" is an amazing true tale that starts with the humor, small crimes and hijinks of two college fraternity boys at a Deep South Division II School in the Wiregrass of Southern Alabama. One of them was a scholarship football player and one was a player at life. Boys of the 60s became young men of the 80s sharing times that would bond them forever. What begins as an alcohol-hazed dare turns into a harrowing, but mostly hilarious, rite of passage story that will keep you laughing and may leave you crying by the surprising conclusion. Jim Hall is an expert story teller in the southern traditions of Lewis Grizzard, Mark Twain, and the fictitious Forrest Gump. Jim's gift for mischief, combined with being a natural smart-ass, leads to a page-turning read that you will share with your friends and family.

Meet the Author

Jim Hall was born in Atlanta, Georgia at the generational turn of 1960. He was the middle child of a middle class civil servant, who escaped the hardscrabble hills of western North Carolina only courtesy of the United States Marines. He was raised to fear God, respect his parents, expand his mind, love cars and knock people's heads off on the football fields of West Georgia.
Jim was a starting nose guard on the Troy University NCAA Division II Trojans for his duration there under the legendary coach Charlie Bradshaw. Jim and his bride of 27 years, Becky, have three grown children.
