Front Porch Talk is another lively, heart-warming collection of hilarious autobiographical boyhood tales told by the masterful storyteller John E. Jordan, Jr. These stories of a boy growing up in the southern coalfields of West Virginia in the 1950s are not only highly entertaining but also draw the reader into that bucolic world -not without its difficulties - and simpler time. A time of gardening, farming, floods, canning, hunting, industrial change, fishing, family visits, Sunday church, funeral wakes, quilting - and when fried chicken and bacon were good for you.
We step into the world of Johnny, a curious, lively, mischievous handful, whose youthful naïveté leads to all kinds of 'situations.' These true tales feature 'Ma Maw,' - a piously devout, bible toting-bible quoting, tightly wound yet good natured and nurturing grandma - and Johnny's 'Pa Paw' - a fun-loving prankster and teller of tall tales with such a love for life that the reader can almost feel the twinkle in his eye. Front Porch Talk is rich in detail, giving the reader a glimpse into this by-gone world and revealing the humor hiding around every turn.
