Description:

Elsie Lavender and Homer Hickam were high school classmates in the West Virginia coalfields. When Homer asked for her hand, Elsie instead headed to Orlando where she sparked with a dancing actor named Buddy Ebsen. But when Buddy headed for New York, Elsie's dreams of a life with him were crushed and eventually she found herself back in the coalfields, married to Homer. Unfulfilled as a miner's wife, Elsie was reminded of her carefree days with Buddy every day because of his unusual wedding gift: an alligator named Albert. When Albert scared Homer by grabbing his pants, he gave Elsie an ultimatum: Me or that alligator! After giving it some thought, Elsie concluded there was only one thing to do: Carry Albert home.

Quotes:

An entertaining memoir-like fantasy adventure/family tribute/love story., Florida Times-Union

In all of its romance, humor, swashbuckling action, heartwarming affection, and tear-jerking sadness, CARRYING ALBERT HOME, in a word, is fantastic., Florida Book Review

An intentionally improbable, bizarre trip through Southern Americana that is ...an amalgam of fact and an almost Walter Mitty-esque degree of fancy, evoking (because of the deadly yet indispensable animal) Life of Pi and (because of the trope of life as journey) Huckleberry Finn., BookPage
