Overview

Drawn from Florida history, folklore, and fiction, this collection of stories tailor-made for telling will entertain, inspire, and astound readers and listeners of all ages.

Dell, crippled since birth, begs his father to let him nurse a broken-legged colt back to health. Against his better judgement, his father agrees. Soon Dell is no longer the little crippled boy whom people pity but the proud owner of Whirlwind, the fastest and finest horse in all of Marion County.

Cracker jack is up to his old tricks: putting one over on his Yankee schoolteacher; confounding a census taker; and convincing a befuddled farmer that it's not Saturday but Sunday (and if the preacher finds him working on a Sunday, well, there'll be you-know-what to pay!)

Even in a place called Dogbone, it's unusual to see a one-eyed, glow-in-the-dark man running naked after a driverless truck with a passel of barking dogs in pursuit. It made the town drunk an honest-to-goodness churchgoer.

What People are saying about this

Ken Crawford
Annette Bruce's second book of Florida Cracker stories brings back the feel of the front porch swing, the sound of the old screen door—and a host of recollections as perennial as cornbread and beans. Here, in these pages, is the tale-teller at work.
