The Hacky is a collection of eight true short stories about two brothers growing up in Hackensack, New Jersey, along the Hackensack River. These stories, set in 1949, are an exciting and humorous adventure comparable to Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Each story presents the lives of Eddie and Gordy (the author) at the ages of eleven and twelve. They ride down the river in an old, rusty cement tub, walk on the rooftops of stores on Main Street, and climb up a scary tower at the Fox Theater movie house. Their surprise gift to a lonely railroad gatekeeper on the night before Christmas is a touching story of kindness of two young boys. They even befriend the hobos and scruffy drifters at the Susquehanna railroad yard, learning all about their colorful travels across country on the rails by hiding in boxcars. aRiding the Railsa is a story about the freedoms in America available for those who are down and out. The Bishop brothers, on the other hand, grew up in an affluent home. Their father was a real estate broker. Their mother raised three children at home. Ahhhha]the good ole days!
