Publisher's Summary

Tucker Smallwood's name is familiar to some but his face and his voice are recognized all over the world. The characters he has created over the past 35 years for television and film air daily on cable and satellite, and the thousands of narrations, TV voice-overs, radio programs, and commercials have made him a subliminal presence in our consciousness.

In 1969, Smallwood was an advisor in Vietnam, enjoyed the life of an actor in the years thereafter, and returned to Vietnam in 2004 as a pilgrim of peace. Return to Eden is an intensely personal work. Each essay describes a true life experience that will amuse you, provoke you, intrigue you, or touch you. The man who lived the stories described in Return to Eden now shares them with you in his own voice.

Critic Reviews

"Tucker Smallwood, an actor of some renown has compiled short, autobiographical essays about his tour of duty, his family and career, and his return to Vietnam in 2006. It is an easy and intriguing read." (The Veteran)

What did you love best about Return to Eden?

Tucker's narration of his work is phenomenal. The tales are good in their own right, but they positively spring to life when he delivers them.

Which scene was your favorite?

The Officer Candidate School portion. OCS foreshadows everything else that was coming up, and influenced seemingly everything that came after it.
