Abstract:

Down in Thomasville, Alabama, a long time ago ... Kathryn Tucker Windham's mellifluous Southern voice guides us by words alone through a town where a parrot sings along with the doxology at church and the telephone operator can tell you anything you need to know. We meet fascinating folks Mose T, who paints a mighty fine sunflower; a daddy who tells potato tales that would make Idaho proud; and Thurza the cook, who explains that "God was just practicing when He made men, but He knew what He was doing when He made women ..." Just when you think you've heard it all, Ms. Windham surprises with a bit of original music played on a most unconventional instrument. "Words are fascinating," she says. These tales prove her point.
