Eleven-year old Jefferson Davis Johnson has been sentenced to a
summer of "moral rehabilitation" under the watchful eye of his
great aunt, Queen Isabella of Spain Johnson. A relic of the
"roaring twenties," this stern matriarch "may" have her own ideas
about what a boy should learn. Will three-years perfect attendance
in his Presbyterian Sunday School be enough to protect Jeffie from
the evils of drink, a warpathing aborigine, and the bright-eyed
tomboy, Pauline Potts? And, for Pete's sake, does any other boy
have a relative who cohabits with the ghost of Jesse James? The
setting for this tale is Southeast Kansas, called "the Little
Balkans," an area known for its coal mines and ethnic diversity.
Author Max Yoho, a Kansan himself, has won numerous writing awards
for his previous work, humorous fiction which includes "The
Revival"; "Tales from Comanche County"; "Felicia, These Fish Are
Delicious"; "The Moon Butter Route" and "With the Wisdom of Owls."
