Acclaimed novelist and screenwriter Bud Shrake coauthored Harvey Penick's Little Red Book, the best-selling sports book of all time. In Billy Boy he carries readers back to the early 1950s for a coming-of-age story that blends golf, history, and spirituality. Sixteen-year-old Billy still feels the pain of his mother's death when his hard-drinking father abandons him in Forth Worth, Texas. Desperate, Billy looks for work as a caddie at Colonial Country Club, home course of his hero, Ben Hogan. Help comes unexpectedly with the appearance of Texas legend John Bredemus, designer of Colonial and scores of other golf courses in the region. With Bredemus' guidance and Hogan's support, Billy has a fighting chance to make something of his life. Narrator Peter Bradbury captures the strength of Billy's determination while evoking the storied, dusty history of Texas.
