Audible Editor Reviews

Volume 5 in the series What Makes Us Southerners contains the kind of homespun stories you'd expect to hear sitting on the front porch sipping lemonade. The quietly amusing pieces are filled with details of a unique time and place: homemade peppermint ice cream, a telephone operator who knows the numbers of everyone in town, the story of how an upset stomach came to be called the "BDT's," a girl who tries to kiss her own elbow in order to become a boy. Kathryn Tucker Windham is a natural storyteller with a twinkle in her well-modulated voice. Friendly and inviting, this audio is likely to rouse the curiosity of listeners of all ages about their own family tales.

Publisher's Summary

"Down in Thomasville, Alabama, a long time ago...." Kathryn Tucker Windham's mellifluous Southern voice guides us by words alone through a town where a parrot sings along with the doxology at church and the telephone operator can tell you anything you need to know. We meet fascinating folks: Mose T, who paints a mighty fine sunflower; a daddy who tells potato tales that would make Idaho proud; and Thurza the cook, who explains, "God was just practicing when He made men, but He knew what He was doing when He made women...."

Just when you think you've heard it all, Ms. Windham surprises with a bit of original music played on a most unconventional instrument.

"Words are fascinating," says Ms. Windham. These tales prove her right.
