A collection of unique and moving stories: In a world where technological innovation and mass media are homogenizing American English, Judith Bader Jones preserves the beauty of the vernacular language distinctive to the Missouri Delta--that "mosquito infested backdrop of civilization"--and captures the hearts of people in the process of being and becoming.

Judith Bader Jones spent the majority of her childhood in Caruthersville and Cape Girardeau. She currently lives in Fairway, Kansas. A writer and photographer, she is the poetry editor of Kansas City Voices.Review:
Ordinary men and women facing challenges from poverty, racism, loss, and their own personal demons populate the pages, and Jones' capture of the Missouri Delta dialogue, as well as Southern culture, atmosphere, and daily life, is exquisite. A treasure of prose gems to savor one at a time or all at once. --Midwest Review
Jones views life through a positive lens--an unusual posture in our overly ironic, even cynical age. Through the course of the collection, we discern that this nonjudgmental view of life fits her interpretation of the mid-century period and the resilience of her characters--farm and small town folk, dealing with material losses and spiritual gains, while the Great River rolls by. --Catherine Browder, "Tales from Missouri Bayou Country," New Letters
