Overview

Travels With Grandpaw is Tuesdays With Morrie--in Boots. David Davis is known for his award winning children's picture books. This is a coming of age story with Texas in the last century as a backdrop. The author traveled with his beloved "Grandpaw" Raymond Lacy (1905-97) all across Texas in a relationship that spanned forty-nine years. From 1948 to 1997. In that time, Mr. Lacy taught the author about hunting, fishing, loving, kindness, courage and loss. They had many adventures and you can share them, too. Hear about a Texas Hill Country Christmas in the 1880's as told by an old farmer born in 1869. Corner a wild tomcat in the outhouse with Raymond and his brother, Alton. Visit early 1900's East Texas for a Christmas with a buckboard full of roman candles, a new Barlow pocket knife, music and firewater, and a kind old Cherokee named Joe. View a monumental skeet shooting contest between Grandpaw with his old "sweet sixteen" square-backed Browning and an arrogant big time skeet shooter with a golden Beretta over and under shotgun. Watch as they encounter a dancing duck thief near Indianola, Texas. Visit a country wake in the Texas Piney Woods. Ride along with Ray and his band in 1920 when they play a rural dance--and have to fend off a gang of troublemakers. Stand beside Grandpaw Lacy as he stands up against four young hoodlums--when he was in his eighties! This book is about growing up, growing old, and the wheel of life, but mostly it is about laughter--and Raymond Lacy, an unbribed soul.
