Do you remember how you felt when you were learning to drive? You were nervous. You were scared. Your heart was racing and your mouth was dry. You were so frightened by failure that you wanted to call it quits...except that you were more thrilled by the chance to experience something that could lead to freedom.Justin Cane, a Mississippi farmerā€™s young boy in the summer of 1959, feels the same way as he learns about driving and about life. Justinā€™s mentor is his fatherā€™s trusted black farmhand, Able. Able comes across as an incredibly strong man, both physical and spiritually. As Justin and Able take a road trip together through the low lands of the Mississippi Delta, the boy learns not only to drive on the open road but, more importantly, about the wonder and cruelty of life.
