Initial thoughts

 

He was fine meeting people and fitting in except for the occasional fight to gain acceptance.  He struggled in school because his whole life living in cities among the people up to that point had taught him more than a school book or a teacher ever could.  He wasn't a bad kid either but the pressure he recieved from his Granny and aunt about religion labeled him as one of the bad apples.  He sees the details in the very small, then expands his image into a wider veiw through what he has seen and experienced.  He sometimes sees so wide that he misses some of the area in between.  Like when he was accedentally selling the white supremicist newspaper because he was busy reading the fiction in the magazine section and did not notice the paper.  He finds his escape first through nature and when he became older he started to read more books.  He was also a drunk by the age of seven, which was probably a good thing to get that out of the way sooner before he was in highschool and had higher chances of being a drunkard for the rest of his life.  He's way to smart for his age.  I think his inteligence is exaggerated by him being older at the time of being written.  I'm sure he did all of those things as he said but did not have the same understanding.  I don't know the guy, and he's dead so I don't think that I will ever know.
