Audible Editor Reviews

Donald Davis grew up in the mountains of North Carolina, where his family spent Friday evenings at his Grandparents' farm; past dirt roads and corn fields he would go back 200 years in time to the log house his grandparents lived in without electricity or running water. Here he’d spend time soaking up the Appalachian porch stories the adults told. In this audiobook he recounts, in this colloquial style, stories of his youth, imitating the voices and tales and explaining how he became a storyteller. He also tells of Jack, that mischievous rascal who always shows up in Appalachian folklore. It’s a story his grandmother told him: "The Time Jack Made the King Mad".

Publisher's Summary

Grandma's house was a magical place, and in this vivid memoir, Donald Davis makes it possible for each of us to go back to our own grandma's kitchen, clutter room, living room, and to that immeasurable bed that seemed to swallow us whole. This selection also contains a traditional story Davis learned from his grandmother, one handed down through his family from generations who once lived in Scotland before coming to the Appalachian mountains, about the time that fortune-seeker named Jack made the king mad.

For Adults and Young Adults.
