Waaaahooooooo!!! That's what you'll want to yell when you take a ride in Jack's souped up '57 Chevy. With Charlene at his side, they scream along the blacktops and fish-tail the gravel roads of the Big Thicket of East Texas. Jack, a birder, is in pursuit of woodpeckers. Ivory bills are hunted and piliateds abound while love comes a knocking and peckerwoods confound. A naturalists delight!
