Description

When it came to getting the two of us in trouble, Soup was a regular genius....Soup was my best pal. His real and righteous name was Luther Wesley Vinson, but nobody called him Luther. He didn't like it. I called him Luther just once, which promoted Soup to break me of a very bad habit before it really got formed. As soon as the swelling went out of my lip, I called him Soup instead of Thoop.Here are the stories of that friendship, and of the troubles--stories from a boyhood filled with barrels to roll in, apples to whip, windows to break, ropes to bind prisoners, acorn pepes, and ten-cent Saturday movies. But then as always nothing was quite as important as a best friend.

Author Biography

Robert Newton Peck comes from generations of Yankee farmers. Like the Vermont folk he writes about in his novel, A Part of the Sky, he was raised as a boy in the Shaker Way, which endured even after the sect itself had died out. Its view of life is embodied in the character of his young protagonist's father, who believed that a faith is more blessed when put to use than when put to word: "A man's worship counts for naught, unless his dog and cat are the better for it." Peck has written over fifty novels, six nonfiction works, numerous songs, and over one hundred poems. His most famous works are Soup and A Day No Pig Would Die.
