CANCELED—Steve Watkins | 'The King of Highbanks Road'

In The King of Highbanks Road: Rediscovering Dad, Rural America, and Learning to Love Home Again, Steve Watkins writes about the perfect storm of circumstances that came together in the early 1980s creating the US Farm Crisis and the beginning of the end of small cotton farms across the South.  Farm Aid, launched by Willie Nelson and John Cougar, was a call to action in support of the farmers. For southerners and rural America, this book projects a familiar voice about time, place, culture and way of life. Watkins infuses humor with transparency and a delightful tale of rural America as he recounts a quest for self-discovery, purpose, and the surprise reward of learning to love home again.
