Storyteller Kathryn Tucker Windham offers a collection of reminiscences from her younger days, primarily of her youth in Alabama. Her rich accent and wizened voice make for great listening as she talks about frog houses, her first airplane ride, and a tombstone her aunt used for baking. Many of these stories point out human foibles and idiosyncrasies in a way that is both funny and warm, and Windham always has something unique to say. The sound effects that transition from one story to the next are authentic, but they're lengthy and seem more like filler than additions to the stories. But this is only true because the stories themselves are so good. A.F. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
