Abstract:

Billy Porterfield's memoir begins in 1938, when his restless father decided to leave the family farm in Little Egypt, Oklahoma, to become an oil field driller. During the next seventeen years, the Porterfields - the author, his parents, and his younger brother and sister - moved twenty-two times, chasing the flow of oil in Texas in their sleek Terraplane Hudson. Alternately rambunctious and refined, mythic and earthy, Porterfield's family and circle of eccentrics are brought to life with rich color and texture.
