Front-porch rocking chairs by Kathryn Tucker Windham( Sound Recording )

Close your eyes, and you can almost feel the rocking of the chair as you listen. Kathryn Tucker Windham's gentle Southern accent winds its way through these childhood and adult recollections, while her traditional wisdom and sharp sense of humor spin the spell she casts like a blanket over her listeners. Exploring the idea that being with and understanding your family is perhaps the most important lesson of all, Ms. Windham takes us out to her front porch in the morning, to the little Methodist church, across the Alabama River, all the way to Washington, D.C., and then back home to rock and admire the purple martins. The little town of Thomasville, Alabama, blooms on the ridge between the rivers, and it is brought into focus by a truly Southern storyteller

Old Man Hawkins was a larger-than-life character among deer hunters, or more precisely among tellers and hearers of tall tales. His self-proclaimed method of hunting deer by holding a mirror in one hand and his rifle in the other pointing backward over a shoulder was, he said, to be fair to the deer. It was a story, Davis tells us, that would occupy his father on the drive to Grandma's house

Grits by Kathryn Tucker Windham( Sound Recording )
5 editions published between 1986 and 2011 in English and held by 67 libraries worldwide
Nowhere are Kathryn Tucker Windam's transcendant themes of community, fidelity, and family more evident than in these stories. The author calls them "recollections of a happy Southern childhood," but her avid admirers would tell you they are much more than that. Combining her vivid characterization, her affection for the South and its people, her well-seasoned humor, and her distinctive diction, these stories capture something of Southern culture that is in danger of extinction. By listening to Ms. Windham, we remember, celebrate, and carry on ways that will allow future generations of children to have similar memories of family and community
Old-fashioned words by Kathryn Tucker Windham( Sound Recording )
5 editions published between 1986 and 2011 in English and held by 65 libraries worldwide
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 more interesting, even when what's different is a little behind the times. Ms. Windham's rich voice spreads over the listener like butter over Southern cornbread, and these multilayered memories create something larger--a community sustained by tradition, values, family, and, above all, humor
Friends come back by Donald Davis( Sound Recording )
3 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 61 libraries worldwide
An affirmation of enduring friendship and an adventure story, all rolled into one. The best friend of our youth has no replacement ever. Though we may start out as two peas in a pod, we often lose touch with one another. In this affecting tale of two adults who reclaim their childhood bond after thirty years apart, the comforts of friendship are affirmed with humor and wit. The second story, The Frog Jumped Twice, recalls a childhood lesson, learned at no small cost, that comes to full flower in adulthood. As usual, Davis deftly disguises a realization of enduring values in the guise of humor and remembrance

3 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 61 libraries worldwide

A legacy of independent women permeates these recollections: women who managed households, who became entrepreneurs, and who managed public facilities. The women she remembers may have been fair, but they certainly were not weak
