Fall into the world of Central Texas in the 60’s
If you’re looking for a book that will make you laugh, cry and smile, Quintessential Redneck is it.
Many books speak of the sixties—pop culture, the Beatles, JFK, Vietnam War, civil rights, walking on the moon—but not from the eyes of an elementary school boy growing up on the prairie in Central Texas. This is a humorous and tear-jerking look back in time, a thought-provoking and entertaining look at history and people. Wesley Whisenhunt is a Texas native, and he’s felt a calling to write about his life story since he was a young boy in the Texas prairie.
Themes Covered in the Book
- Pop culture and history: Read stories about the Vietnam War, John F. Kennedy, the Beatles and more through the eyes of a young boy growing up in Gatesville, Texas.
- Tragedy and loss: Wesley Whisenhunt lost his father at a young age and had to learn to navigate his own grief and the grief of his mother.
- Growing up in small-town Texas: Gatesville, TX is a beautiful part of the world, but it’s a whole lot different from the cities you see on TV.
