Audible Editor Reviews

Recording in her Alabama home, journalist and storyteller Kathryn Tucker Windham shares humorous and touching tales of the important women in her life. Her warm, natural, and charming style almost convinces the listener that Windham is sitting in the next rocking chair. As she shares her recollections in a genuine Southern accent, she isn't afraid to laugh or even to burst into song. Her memories focus on Aunt Bet, who served as postmaster and cake baker in Windham's hometown of Thomasville, Alabama. The listener won't soon forget the tombstone in Aunt Bet's kitchen or her blackberry-wine dilemma. This is a sentimental journey one wishes would never end.

Publisher's Summary

In these stories of her mother, her Aunt Bet, and other women who influenced her, author and storyteller Kathryn Tucker Windham reveals the complexity of Southern women in the days before feminism entered the common vocabulary. A legacy of independent women permeates these recollections: women who managed households, who became entrepreneurs, and who managed public facilities. The women she remembers may have been fair, but they certainly were not weak.

(P)2002 August House Publishers, Inc.

    Story
    "An Alabama Treasuer"

    I grew up listening to my grandfather's stories of his childhood in Birmingham. One of the best treats in the fall was listening to ghost stories at Sloss Furnace.

    Listening to these remembrances brings back both those days and provides a look into a long forgotten time - pre computer ; )

    For some the cadence may be a little slow but sit back and let it wash over you. Try to remember that sitting around the table and talking about one's past is how we share it with those coming behind us.
