Winner, 1995 Western States Book Award. Peopled with some of the most authentically drawn characterizations of rural life since Mark Twain, Lee's is a small town universe--an aural agrarian saga, --is filled with hilarity, love, labor, tragicomedy, and compassionate wisdom. It's a speech full of eloquence, pathos, and humor, full of music, full of good sense. I could read it all week.--Hayden Carruth.
