This can’t-put-it-down coming of age memoir is dramatic and heart wrenching, as young Patsy Lou takes us on a journey through the Dust Bowl of Oklahoma and Texas at the time of our nation’s greatest environmental disaster. You will keep reading to find out what more could happen to this sweet child of the Great Depression after she endures severe burns down there at age seven when she pees on hot coals. As a result she suffers a type of genital mutilation that affects her entire life. And with it all, her delicious sense of humor is evident throughout Peeing On Hot Coals
