Rare Birds of Coastal Alabama

In the small mill town of Pressley near the Alabama coast during the summer of 1970, within its traditional blue collar, Deep South culture, great social changes are astir and a diverse array of characters – a neglected husband, a disillusioned preacher, a single mother, an abused wife, a flower child runaway, an orphaned loner and a fatherless boy, through adventures in birdwatching and catfishing, hallucinogenic trips, adulterous affairs, fist fights and prayer vigils, seek a way out of their loneliness, isolation and despair.  Rare Birds of Coastal Alabama tells of their various evolving, disparate, connecting and intertwining stories.
