Catherine earns a meager living shucking oysters in a filthy, mosquito-infested shed. Prohibition becomes law and the mayor and sheriff of nearby Savannah lure her son and daughter into rum-running on the deserted Georgia sea islands. Will voodoo and prayer be enough to protect her children when federal agents close in for a raid?
Wild Times on Skidaway Island examines choices residents make when stared down by a bald eagle, when a red-tailed hawk mistakes a golf ball for bird food, and when awakened by the clatter of hooves hitting wooden deck as a deer make a midnight snack out of newly potted flowers.
"It's never too late to discover the champion hidden within." Karen Dove Barr was a 50 year old working mother when the last of her children grew up and abandoned her. All that was left were 3 bedrooms full of furniture rejected by the Salvation Army. When she tried running a few steps her husband told her to "just walk, you are too old to run." A long distance runner was born.
