Down By The Riverside
Brand New from Ronnie McBrayer. Available now by going here.
Before there was a “Scenic Highway 30-A” or a tourist-friendly “Emerald Coast,” there was only the backbreaking labor of timbering, the slow chugging of paddle-driven riverboats, hardscrabble living in Walton County’s small villages, and subsistence farming and fishing along the waterways of the Choctawhatchee River. “Down By The Riverside,” inspired by the 2016 Grit & Grace production by the same name, features the lives and times of the tough-skinned, hard-working pioneers who occupied the banks of the Choctawhatchee River – in their own words.
