Best Bang For Your Buck Blackwater is just a plain ole get down, nitty gritty Southern adventure with a serious wallop in the end. I love these characters. They really speak to me. This book is about life, fun, hero-worship, and tragedy. You may not agree with some of Cotton’s quirks, but you will be totally absorbed in these characters. Prepare to be sucked in and live an adventure that will stay with you for a long time to come.
