"We need stories like these to help us make sense out of our lives. Kunkel's characters are familiar to most Midwesterners. They're laconic, hardworking, practical, quick to worry, slow to complain. . . . These are stories to warm the heart and spirit." - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. With an entertaining cast of Midwestern characters - farmers, newlyweds, hunters, ministers, teens - this luminescent collection of 17 short stories combines humor, grace, and tender insights. There are rewards to win (and prices to pay), whether swimming in musky-infested waters in the nude . . . or facing the Armistice Day Blizzard of 1940 . . . or chasing an aging rhino down a Wisconsin back road. Author Jeff Kunkel is an accomplished storyteller, writer, artist, and United Methodist minister. Born and raised in Wisconsin, he now lives in Oakland, California.
