9781425799687: Gramps' Tales

Twentieth Century nostalgia, a sense of adventure with old-fashioned midwestern values, warm, personal and richly illustrated biography/genealogy, and a fascinating glimpse into the pursuit and practice of professional fiction writing; Gramps' Tales has something for everyone! From the renowned Martin Family Photographers of Terre Haute, Indiana, the life of U.S. veteran, I.R.S. agent and "regular guy" E. Stanley Martin is shared through his letters, genealogy, autobiography and compiled biographical stories, as well as through glimpses of his innermost thoughts and feelings as revealed by his fictional works and the comments of his professional writing coaches.

One of these writing coaches whose letters of guidance and advice - from the 1940's - are included in this work, was Thomas H. Uzzel, whose subsequent volumes on "Narrative Technique" and "Fundamentals of Fiction", though currently out of print, continue to be hailed as top definitive works of methodology for aspiring authors in colleges and universities.

Re: E. Stanley Martin:
His heroes were poets, humorists, adventurers, naturalists - Frank "Bring 'em Back Alive" Buck, Mark Twain, Leonard Clark (The Rivers Ran East), and his own dad, the loving and versatile Frank James Martin. His forefathers were farmers and his family members were noted cutting edge Hoosier photographers. He respectfully and competently served the government of this great country in war and in peace, and his dream was to be a published author.

Through the gift of his stories and with the lifelong support of my family, I put my hand in his as we live that dream together. Join me for a walk with Gramps from the dawn of the twentieth century. - Kris Harper Bush
