Harry Arthur Gant lived at the intersection of the Old West and the New West. He was a cowboy during the 1890s. He saw at first hand the hard work, the hard fun, and the occasional violence of that place and time. He knew cattle barons and horse thieves, con men and hustlers. As civilization spread through the Old West, he worked with the Wild West Shows that helped perpetuate the legends of that country. He was a guy who could get things done. When the first film makers came around, he soon became indispensable to them, and then followed them to the New West. With a new set of skills in the silent film era, he helped perpetuate the new form of legend that came out of Hollywood. He knew stars and extras, more con men and hustlers, movers and shakers. He tells his story with a distinctive mix of Old West plain speaking and New West sophistication, with the rough edges left on. This memoir spans two of the most fascinating parts of America's past.

In his revealing and frank autobiography, David G. Atwood, II takes us into a world of government corruption, back-stabbing politicians and an all too familiar tour of the criminal justice system. Persecuted by a corrupt sheriff's department for exposing a cabal of local corruption that reached into the upper echelon of international politics; prosecuted and sent to federal prison for a crime he didn't commit; and discriminated against for being gay, David leads us on a journey through the life of a prisoner that only an insider could tell and captivates us with a story of courage that will inspire everyone who reads it. Whether revealing the drug connections that for years have padded the pockets of the local cops and exposing how government-sanctioned drug deals in Vicksburg, Mississippi helped illegally fund the Nicaraguan Contras in the 1980's, David leaves no hole's barred as he takes aim at those who would misuse their political power for personal gain.

From the time that he had first found, himself alone with them, Oliver had felt sure that the animals could come alive again if they wished. That was one blowy afternoon about a week after his father had been made night engineer and nobody had come into the Museum for several hours. Oliver had been sitting for some time in front of the Buffalo case, wondering what might be at the other end of the trail. The cows that stood midway in it had such agoinglook. He was sure it must lead, past the hummock where the old bull flourished his tail, to one of those places where he had always wished to be. All at once, as the boy sat there thinking about it, the glass case disappeared and the trail shot out like a dark snake over a great stretch of rolling, grass-covered prairie. He could see the tops of the grasses stirring like the hair on the old Buffalo's coat, and the ripple of water on the beaver pool which was just opposite and yet somehow only to be reached after long travel through the Buffalo Country. The wind moved on the grass, on the surface of the water and the young leaves of the alders, and over all the animals came the start and stir of life. And then the slow, shuffling steps of the Museum attendant startled it all into stillness again. The attendant spoke to Oliver as he passed, for even a small boy is worth talking to when you have been all day in a Museum where nothing is new to you and nobody comes. "You want to look out, son," said the attendant, who really liked the boy and hadn't a notion what sort of ideas he was putting into Oliver's head. "If you ain't careful, some of them things will come downstairs some night and go off with ye." And why should MacShea have said that if he hadn't known for certain that the animalsdidcome alive at night? That was the way Oliver put it when he was trying to describe this extraordinary experience to his sister. Dorcas Jane, who was eleven and a half and not at all imaginative, eyed him suspiciously. Oliver had such a way of stating things that were not at all believable, in a way that made them seem the likeliest things in the world. He was even capable of acting for days as if things were so, which you knew from the beginning were only the most delightful of make-believes. Life on this basis was immensely more exciting, but then you never knew whether or not he might be what some of his boy friends called "stringing you," so when Oliver began to hint darkly at his belief that the stuffed animals in the Mammal room of the Museum came alive at night and had larks of their own, Dorcas Jane offered the most noncommittal objection that occurred to her.

Cussy rode a big faded red 1934 motorcycle in and around the small town of Oasis. Where at the west end of Topple Street, a locally owned grocery store made headline news, on memorial-day weekend, June 1948. Although a premeditated crime occurred inside the market that warm summer evening, the entire dramatic ordeal merely began what was to become a precursor of unprecedented summer events. Where unpredictable madness coat tails chaos, and a small group of colorful, neighborly individual’s, erupt in zany notoriety one after thee other. From outlaw to lawmen the cast of characters amasses throughout the summer months, crossing paths and briefly uniting for a good cause. But, according to 6-year-old Eko Jett, a lot of lives on Topple Street are not as clear as they may appear. Even still it’ll be a summer to remember. Especially after what some people deemed so terribly bad, turned out to be so awfully good. And yes Eko Jett won’t forget, Cussy rode a ’34.
