The humor and the hope of an Arkansas boyhood, this book contains twenty, mostly-humorous stories of growing up in the depression-day deep south when FDR was "the savior" and battery powered radio was the only contact with the outside world. The one serious piece is the celebrated, award-winning story, The Martyrdom of Andy which has since been published in Chicken Soup for the Soul.

From the Publisher:

This book falls somewhere between the work of Garrison Keillor and Robert Fulghum. Burton's stories about childhood during the depression are anything but depressing. Once you read this book you will want to share it with a loved one or a fri.

From the Author:

One of the things that distinguishes the human species from the other animals is our ability to laugh; to laugh at ourselves and even those we hold most dear, especially those we hold most dear! That's largely what this book is about.
