Donald Davis shares two long stories: the first about how he and his best friend developed a lifelong relationship through a shared love of hiking and the outdoors and the second about his winding path from a love of chemistry to a college major in English. These are stories that teens will enjoy but adults will truly appreciate. His stories are filled with wisdom and humor and the sort of life lessons that take time to sink in. Davis has excellent pacing. He takes time to share the details but also builds and maintains interest and even suspense. Listeners will be left with smiles on their faces.
The second story, "The Frog Jumped Twice", recalls a childhood lesson, learned at no small cost, that comes to full flower in adulthood. As usual, Davis deftly disguises a realization of enduring values in the guise of humor and remembrance.
