The Missouri Kid by James Melvin Scott

The Missouri Kid, chronicles the life of a boy growing up in the Missouri Ozarks. While his parents, who were farmers, didn't have much - very few families did - they provided their four children with a rich childhood in an environment surrounded by nature. Missouri is a network of great rivers and magnificent streams. Scott grew up hunting and fishing on the rivers and in the Ozark Hills of Missouri. Scott's story takes you through his early years, through his youth, when he played high school basketball and was a cowboy in the rodeo, and into adulthood, when he eventually left Missouri, crossed the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim with a friend as he headed out West, to California, to pursue the American dream.
