South Wind RisingAuthored by Frederick W. Bassett
"South Wind Rising" is a deep, rich portrait of a boy coming of age in a South graced with the power of nature but troubled by lurking dangers. Bassett's forthright narrative is direct and compelling, and Barsh Roberts's sexual education is by turns funny, sweet, moving, and filled with surprises.
