About this title


Stories and essays from the champion of the ''other'' California

Gerald Haslam picks up where Mark Twain left off in this career-spanning collection brimming with life and humor--but this is Kern County instead of Calaveras, Oildale instead of Nevada City, a great alligator hunt instead of a celebrated jumping frog.

While Haslam's stories entertain, his essays gesture at the sweeping diversity of the Central Valley and the richness of community to be found there. Here too is a darker side of California's heartland, where a Japanese family bids good-bye to an America they thought they knew, and where Okies are shunned as second-class citizens. Haslam tackles problems of racism, social class, and environmental issues that are plaguing the Valley, as well as crafting whimsical tales full of local color.

About the Author:

Gerald Haslam is the author and editor of numerous books of fiction and nonfiction, including Haslam's Valley, Workin' Man Blues: Country Music in California, and The Great Central Valley: California's Heartland. Haslam was a professor of English at California State University, Sonoma, until his retirement in 1997.
