Award-winning storyteller Kathryn Tucker Windham shares a look back at her beginnings as a yarn-spinner. It all began with her father, an Alabama banker, who entertained her with his own tales. Windham's natural style and charming accent carry the listener back in time for an endearing glimpse at small-town life in the early twentieth century. She re-creates the Old South with memories of her family and friends, delights with tales of her teenaged adventures, and warms the heart with recollections of a special Christmas. Whether listeners grew up in small towns or just wish they did, all will treasure Windham's yarns.

Summary

She is a living icon of the family storytelling renaissance in America. And to hear her tell it, Kathryn Tucker Windham owes it all to her father, the small-town banker, school-board chairman, and Sunday school superintendent who always came home with a story. These stories celebrate the father he was and the stories that are his legacy. Moving from vignette to story, Mrs. Windham remembers:



Her father's Panama hat
Greeting her father as he returned from business trips, bringing her gifts of new books
Learning to speak French
And more colorful memories of a remarkable relationship
Lovingly, her father instilled in his daughter the gifts of keen observation and a facility for language that reward Ms. Windham's listeners with a unique story experience.

Beautiful

I hope there’s no such thing as wearing out an audiobook ! I have listened to this author’s audios so many times. Sadly, they’re all short but worth every dime to listen to her calm Southern voice tell of times long ago when she was growing up. Each has a theme of sorts. This is a tribute, of sorts to her dad. EXCELLENT.
