Audible Editor Reviews

Storyteller Kathryn Tucker Windham offers a collection of reminiscences from her younger days, primarily of her youth in Alabama. Her rich accent and wizened voice make for great listening as she talks about frog houses, her first airplane ride, and a tombstone her aunt used for baking. Many of these stories point out human foibles and idiosyncrasies in a way that is both funny and warm, and Windham always has something unique to say. The sound effects that transition from one story to the next are authentic, but they're lengthy and seem more like filler than additions to the stories. But this is only true because the stories themselves are so good.

Publisher's Summary

The title story of this collection might have been dubbed "Mother Knows Best". Kathryn Tucker Windham has always had a healthy respect for wisdom, but her true love has always been humor. The stories in this collection reflect her appreciation for traditional values and traditional ways, but they also beguile the listener with that most enchanting of Southern traits, a keen sense of humor.

Windham tells us of a tombstone, exquisitely carved with doves, roses, and delicate leaves, that was used as a carving board and confectionary mold in her family's kitchen; of making frog houses in the sand; of a basket made for picking cotton; and of a little fatherless boy learning the ways of men while waiting to have his "ears lowered".
