Product description


"...Jake Strider delivers a timeless narrative of acute observations leavened with anecdotal humor. He's an old codger with an attitude, and his perceptions of modern life in the rural South are dead-on." -- Sarah McNeil, The Jonesboro Sun

"A book for rural America to brandish and cherish. Excellent!" (The Ouachita Writers Guild)

"We thought tall tales were from Texas, until we met this Arkansas wit who moved in and tickled our fancy while teaching us modern folklore. Old Jake Strider is a new-found friend." -- Lyn Blackmon, The Texarkana Gazette

"As earthy as the rocky hill soil and pure as a pristine Ozark Mountain stream, author Michael Reisig, in The Old Man's Letters, cuts directly to the core of humanity with this new collection. He gives us a spontaneous, full-throated belly laugh, but more often makes us stop, draw in a sharp breath and exhale quickly. A gem of a collection." -- Maylon Rice, The Northwest Arkansas Times

"Forget Chicken Soup. This is the meat and potatoes of Middle America!" -- Best-selling author, Richard Noone

"Reisig's old Jake Strider' is one of the great story-tellers of a passing generation--blending keen observation with the art of the yarn, and he spins them beautifully." -- Tom McDonald, editor, The Log Cabin Democrat

"You'll laugh so hard, you'll embarrass yourself--and you'll be heart-touched to silence." -- Scott Bourns, editor, The Mena Star

From the Publisher

Michael Reisig is an award-winning journalist who writes for Lancaster Newspaper Group. His high-adventure fiction novels are being compared with the writings of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Clive Cusslar, and Michael Crichton. His first novel, "The New Madrid Run," has been optioned for a major motion picture. The audio cassette rights for his second novel, "The Hawks of Kamalon," along with "The New Madrid Run," have been contracted to Books In Motion and will be available the first part of 2000.

In "The Old Man's Letters," Reisig displays his versatility as a writer. You will not read this book without laughing out loud. He can draw a belly laugh from you in one paragraph, and touch you to silence in the next.
