Outlaw Tales of the Superstition Mountains

$19.95 $12.95

Arlin “Junior” Troutt was born to a poor family in the hills of Tennessee and raised on a small tobacco farm north of Nashville. He was born in January of 1950 shortly after World War II had ended and the age of Television was beginning and was caught up in a turbulence of war and social change that is unprecedented in human history.

 

Junior started singing in a child gospel quartet and playing the guitar when he was six years old. A lot of Junior’s perspective on life came from observing the crowd from the bandstand. His adventures into Central and South America and his time spent in federal prison permit him to tell a version of the truth that is not heard today. His dedication to the pursuit of happiness and freedom took him down very dark corridors and to blindingly bright revelations. His perspectives are unique and provocative.

 

Readers drawn to Junior’s story will be allowed into this exclusive world through the recollections of the people who knew him best. Everyday of his life was an adventure that will capture your interest and heart. This story of a country boy with a knack for playing the guitar is an interesting and unique voyage from the last century to the Americana of today.

 

The art, music and story behind Junior’s Outlaw Tales will take you on a journey that will fascinate, illuminate, infuriate, but also compensate you for your effort.

Arlin Troutt

Arlin Troutt was born in the hills of Tennessee in 1950 and raised on a small tobacco farm North of Nashville. He started singing in a child gospel quartet and playing the guitar when he was 6 years old.

Arlin was swept up in an economic exodus from his simple southern farm life to the city life of Indianapolis, Indiana in the early 1960’s. He played in many groups of musical variety. Arlin calls this book in his life: “Read’in Right’in and Route 31 to Indianapolis/Naptown.”

Indianapolis changed Arlin and his music. By 1969 Arlin was caught up in the turbulence of the times and soon headed for Arizona to a new life of escape, adventure and excitement. While in Arizona Arlin became deeply involved in the political issues that started with the Vietnam War and evolved into the civil Drug War than now rages in our streets. Again. Arlin and his music changed with the times and terrain. In 1971 his first son was born and he moved to what is now known as Gold Canyon, Arizona, where he still lives today.

From the sunsets and mountains of the Southwest to the jungle trails into Central and South America, Arlin absorbed the cultural influences and easy way of living on the way to the equator. Arlin’s life and work is an anthology of “unique non-conformity” that was shaped by his experiences and personal observations.
