Florida--like the rest of America--experienced tremendous economic growth during World War Two. Money poured into the Sunshine State and generated widespread employment. In this setting Ray's father is on a quest to find the perfect job. As the family travels from town to town among Florida's lakes and one-room schoolhouses, Ray gets into a variety of jams--like a homemade zipline disaster and alligator attack in a dark swamp. Yet he makes his best childhood friend in Windermere, whose mother and grandmother introduce him to the southern comfort of fried chicken, mashed potatoes and ice tea.
NEVER AGITATE AN ALLIGATOR relates the experiences of a grade school boy, Raymond Duncan, living in Florida in the 1940s. In this wonderland of orange groves and sunshine, lakes and fishing, Ray's adventures unfold as his father, Walter, moves the family from one town to the next in pursuit of anticipated job opportunities--which typically turn out temporary and unfulfilling.
FLORIDA IN THE 1940s
NEVER AGITATE AN ALLIGATOR!
More than one good laugh!
Raymond Duncan’s boyhood memoir, Never Agitate an Alligator, produced many a laugh-out-loud for me. It is probably the best $1.99 I have spent in a long time! If you have been around longer than a little while, you will easily relate to, and, as well, get a chuckle or two from these stories from one who grew up as a "free range" kid.
