Trouble on the Tombigbee

(2011)
A novel by

 
 
Ted Dunagan's third young-adult novel continues the story of boyhood friends Ted and Poudlum, a white boy and a black boy who live in the rural segregated South of the 1940s. Ted and Poudlum are in for more adventures as they find themselves on a fishing trip interrupted by criminal activity. They camp out in the vicinity of a Ku Klux Klan meeting and accidentally learn the identity of key Klansmen. Discovered, they use their wits to escape down the river, only to swim into the arms of more trouble.

Great pacing and Dunagan's narrative storytelling gifts make this an engaging read in which Ted and Poudlum again enjoy the thrill of engagement with the adult world even as they celebrate the pleasures of just being kids. Their escapades test their resourcefulness and challenge their awakening moral selves, as each bend in the river causes them to wonder about the right thing to do - a question that, remarkably, they do not need to ask about their own friendship. Being a kid was never better than how Ted Dunagan imagines it. And the imagining has never been better than in Trouble on the Tombigbee.
