Here is a brief description of the book:
In this fast paced story filled with holy hi-jinx and missionary mayhem, Golden squares off with his characteristic cowboy sense of humor against everything from spiteful preachers to the threat of death at the hands of the terrible Ku Klux Klan. Join Golden as he takes on the South with these unbelievable, true stories.
Meet the Author:
Scott graduated from Brigham Young University and is currently enrolled in the School of Hard Knocks. He is a nomad who claims his home in Utah, California, Hawaii and wherever else in the world he happens to be. The closest thing heâ€™s ever done to being a cowboy was dude ranching for a day. He couldnâ€™t sit down for two weeks afterwards. Like Golden, heâ€™s tall and skinny. He also shares some of Golden’s colorful vocabulary and his immense love for the gospel.
