Editorial Reviews

In a deep Southern drawl, storyteller Windham doles out these personal memories like lemonade on a sizzling summer day. Her opinions on Yankee "conebread" and dark-colored butter beans are priceless…her accounts cover summer camp revival meetings, politics, and food in a delightful manner… [the audiobook] is embellished by sound effects like choir singing and children playing. Forty-one minutes is not enough; listeners will want more of Windham's storytelling.

Publisher's Summary

Kathryn Tucker Windham begins this montage of stories with the sounds of summer and ends with a joyful Christmas memory. The mixture of tales, from the mouth-watering description of good Southern food to the story of a governor more familiar with Tom Sawyer than Tom Jefferson, comes together to evoke the image of a happy childhood. The title selection shows us how saying things just a little differently can make life just that much more interesting, even when what's different is just a little behind the times.

Ms. Windham's rich voice spreads over the listener like butter over Southern cornbread, and these multicolored memories create something larger: a community sustained by tradition, values, family, and above all, a sense of humor.
