Yocona Puff Adder Has a lot of Huck Finn in it. The tale is rich with Folksy anecdote and involves two boys, one white, the other black, as they come of age . . . in the rural South. [from 1954 through the 1970s] The locale is obviously Oxford, Mississippi and though the characters have been given fictitious names, some of them such as William Faulkner, are easily recognized in a fascinating town where Inmon, himself, grew up during an interesting period. — Curtis Wilkie, University of Mississippi Cook Chair of Journalism, author of Dixie: A Personal Odyssey Through Events That Shaped the Modern South
