About this title


Traces the life of the humorist and folklorist, describes his career in radio and television, and discusses his encounter with McCarthyism and blacklisting

From the Back Cover:

"A loving, yet revealing portrait of one of America's wittiest men."
          --STUDS TERKEL

"During his life, John Henry Faulk had that 'homespun philosopher' image. Underneath that country-boy talk, however, lay a razor-sharp wit and keen mind. He also had that special way of separating the wheat from the chaff, and making us see our own foolishness. Through humor, he made us examine our prejudices. John Henry exhibited conviction and compassion. This book conveys his timeless wisdom and wonderful talent."
          --ANN RICHARDS

"In researching John Henry Faulk, Michael Burton had a rich vein to mine. He mined it well."
          --CACTUS PRYOR

"Persecuted by the blacklist in the dark period of his country's anticommunist hysteria, Faulk fought back, and heroically helped defeat the bigots who sought to stifle America's most precious heritage - the right of free press, speech, and worship. His story is one for the books, and this one is highly recommended.."
