An unsolicited review of: Roll On Sugaree "Cock fighting, con men, a fight for land and water rights, and, of course, a love story. This book has it all. Being from North Carolina, it is refreshing to read a book about the South without caricatures of toothless rednecks. Loyd Little brings the reality of rural life to the front while telling a great story. This is about people with ties to the earth and their families, and the struggle of the rural economy in an increasingly disconnected urban world. The descriptions of the intricacies of cock fighting and the varied social networks they create put a human face on what is normally a subject only associated with animal cruelty. I also recommend his two previous books about Special Forces in Vietnam: Parthian Shot and In The Village of the Man. Loyd is a master story teller. " --- Posted by Greg Ingram on Amazon.com
Another unsolicited comment about Roll On Sugaree: "Rich in language intriguing in plot, deft in characterization, and impressive in exposition of cockfighting---its history, technique, and the classification of the birds themselves---including pictures." -- Posted by Neill Clark on Facebook
