    Mr. Riley took Bud (James' nickname) to the bank above the deep pool. "Ready?" he asked. "Ready!" shrieked Bud with delight. "In you go then," said his father as he tossed him into the water. "Now swim out!" he shouted. But Bud didn't swim out!

    What happened to James Whitcomb (Bud) Riley at the swimming hole that day? Find out as you travel back in time to the boyhood of one of the most popular poets of the early 20th century. Author of "Little Orphan Annie," "The Old Swimmin' Hole," and hundreds more poems, Bud Riley spent his childhood in mid-19th century Indiana where stagecoaches where a common sight, rope swings were the only thrill rides, and telling spooky stories by firelight was the best entertainment of all!
