A galloping romp through the memories and stories of a man who has held a colorful relationship with Galveston Island since his very early years. From first-hand stories told to him by the direct descendant of an enslaved woman bought and sold in Galveston, and the heart-wrenching memories of a 1900 storm survivor, to the hilarious adventures he and his brother shared while spending summers on the island with paternal grandparents. Raconteur Riggs has woven a rich tapestry of tales and memories of the magical island, including early history, pirates, slavery, gambling, natural history, hurricanes, love, loss, ghosts and a myriad of other topics. Sharing from his personal adventures, Riggs takes the reader on a roller coaster journey through emotions that run the gamut of human experiences, and all associated with the tiny island in the Gulf of Mexico. A must read for those who enjoy adventure, romance and pure fun, as told through the memories of a young boy, adolescent and adult who has held strong to every piece of a Galveston story that became part of his life.
