Ferrol Sams presents stories of a bright, sensitive lad growing up on farm in Georgia during the Depression. The stories are rich with Southern culture. They feature eccentric characters, often in situations that turn out to be very funny. Reader Sams has one of those charming Georgia accents. He begins in a stilted voice, but about midway, he relaxes and becomes The Boy (who is always referred to in the third person). The stories, actually excerpts from Sams's novel, are separated by choruses of old, familiar hymns played on what can only be a country church piano. The effect is delightfully relaxing. D.W.K.
