Editorial Reviews

Donald Davis' stories must be heard to be appreciated. This acclaimed storyteller has a gift for making listeners feel as though they're sitting out on a porch on a lazy afternoon listening to him spin out his tales. In "Stanley Easter", Davis reminisces about a college friend who helped him find pride in his North Carolina roots while in "Some Things Never Change", Davis lets the audience stroll through his memories of his boyhood town. Davis has a gift for details and listeners will find it easy to vividly imagine the scenes he lovingly describes.

Publisher's Summary

There was a time during Donald Davis' college freshman year when he wasn't really sure he wanted to claim his hometown of Sulpher Springs, North Carolina. But a boy by the name of Stanley Easter changed Davis's mind.

"My sophomore year I did go home for Thanksgiving," he recalls. "In fact, I had now become so proud of where I was from that I could hardly wait to get home. I no longer had to lie about where I was from."

This story of accepting one's roots will speak to all who have ever thought twice about admitting where they came from. And Davis, through his sly narration, acknowledges that a whole lifetime of thought and attitudes can be rearranged in a single moment.

For Adults and Young Adults.
