The boys soon are running moonshine down the perilous Dawsonville Road to Atlanta. Cops and enemies lurk at every turn, and old rivalries turn into a deadly race down the mountain in the thrilling adventure.

Book Two: Dirt Tracks and Death tells the story of the early years of racing on the round mud tracks carved out of deep-south cotton fields. Fonty, Bob and Tim race all comers, but their fiercest competition is with one another. Ethel Flock Mobley fights harder than anyone because girls aren’t supposed to race… no matter how good they are.
