These are true life stories about the adventures of a young man who in 1975 goes to work in the offshore oil fields of Southern Louisiana. He discovers a WORLD OF MEN--of dirt and sweat. The men he meets are unforgettable--local legends who get the job done--no matter what the cost to themselves!

Men who drink and fight...at every opportunity--because they don't know when or IF they'll get the next chance. These are unknown--and unsung--heroes who risked their lives daily so that the rest of us can put gasoline in our cars. Men like them continue to toil offshore around the world in the search for Black Gold.
