Good Old Boy: A Delta Boyhood is a novel for young readers about a boy's adventures growing up in post-WWII Mississippi. Author Willie Morris, then editor of Harper's Magazine in New York, wrote Good Old Boy when his son David, age ten, asked, What was it like to grow up in the South? Morris s response turned into a timeless story of growing up in a small Southern town, Yazoo City in the early 1950s, roaming the town with his friends and playing practical jokes and having adventures. Good Old Boy is supplemental reading at many schools for sixth through ninth grade.
