You've heard all those jokes about people who live in the country as they are stereotyped as uneducated, impoverished and unintelligent. In the country, people who live in the city are stereotyped as too overeducated for their own good, hurried and self-centered. In this book both of these stereotypes were brought colliding head on to create humor and to teach counseling issues such as anger management, social skills, self-esteem, dating and decreasing stress. As you read you will speak the language of a simple country girl and accompany her as she journeys for the first time to the big city. It is my hope that as we laugh at these ridiculous stereotypes we would seek not to judge, but love our fellow brethren.
"Now ya hard-workin city or country cowboy relax an enjoy ya a good laugh cuz you're worth it."
