Blackwater is a sort of coming of age novel that tells the tale of one boy's journey through an incredible summer with his crazy, redneck uncle. The book is set in the mid-sixties and offers some vivid and moving scenes of life on the St. John's River in Florida. Blackwater is told from the point of view of the boy and transitions from the past to the present with a skill that is difficult to match. C. D. Blizzard takes the reader on a thrill ride that will leave them gasping for breath, tingling all over, and ultimately shocked right down to the roots of their toenails. It is an unforgettable experience.
