Red River Dust
Former teacher Shirley Porter combines an outstanding ability as a writer with her knowledge of cattle ranching, small town high schools and memories of Spanish Fort, Texas as she tells a riveting story involving two seventeen year olds as their world is invaded and turned upside down by outside influences. Her tale begins with high school seniors Sam and Travis having a coke and peanuts on the steps of the general store in Spanish Fort. Their only concerns with life are talking about where they are going to college and the upcoming basketball season. The boys' world is typical for a couple of small town farm kids. Jackson, the general store proprietor, tells them about a new family that just moved on to the "Rankin place." Little do the boys know, but this family is about to change their lives forever.
