Great Work Vic Cambell

As a native Californian, I moved from Los Angeles to Milton, Florida in junior high. Talk about culture shock! The down home, rural, country, Southern style and the simple pleasures replaced the very latest of everything that LA was. I knew Vic and was in clubs with him. He has TOTALLY captured the fun, the struggles, the attitudes, family dynamics, and the sense of humor and justice I experienced in the people of Santa Rosa County in the late 1960s. Reading this book from my San Diego home years later, I was transformed to a young teen's age of discovery and wonderment with others my same age including Vic and his Chumuckla cousins. The humor and adventure of young teenage boys captured here is timeless and probably the Southern version of what I would have lived in the California version at that time. I was fortuntate enough to trade the Beach Boys and surfing around Hermosa Beach for fishin', farmin', boatin, and huntin' with the likes of Vic in the country. There is a surprise in this book about guys from the same area having a chance meeting in South Viet Nam. Once again, Vic captures a iconic moment in life.
