A Real Hoot!

No artificial hoots here - but the real deal! Surprisingly literate writing for for a rough and tumble character with little education and of highly questionable morals. At each page it can't possibly get more incredible but it does. The ending pulls all the tales together. Very good and enjoyable light read. Thanks to Jon for bringing this to light.
