By D. Blankenship - Published on
Format: Hardcover
First read this one in the mid l980s and enjoyed every page and word. This is a loosly attached group of stories, one man's expierences living in the Ozarks of Missouri. Having grown up within a few miles of the setting of this work, I found the author captured the spirit of that wonderful place perfectly. It is a shame that this is considered a "regional work" as the author's wit and observations could quite well fill any setting. If you can get a copy, this is certainly one you will want to add to your library. Recommend this one highly.
