Remember Have Gun-Will Travel, Fabian, Roger Maris, Butch Wax, Saturday night baths and ante-I-over. Well make a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows, grab an oatmeal cookie, find a cozy chair to snuggle into and enjoy the warm, nostalgic true adventures of a boy growing up in small town Nebraska circa 1960.
Stories I'll Bury In Bloompatch is Thomas James Bruner's joyous and vivid reminiscence of a year in his childhood. What makes this trip down memory lane unique is that it is not told from an adult point of view. Bruner places himself back in time, telling his stories from the vantage point of a ten-year-old boy who questions the adult world and wonders what his destiny will be.
The boy's journey of discovery includes a terrifying ordeal into the depths of a haunted basement, the realization of the magic of Christmas, a meeting with a baseball legend, the death of loved ones, ever-present bullies and hometown heroes and his own scrape with death.
There is plenty of humor but the book is not a comedy. There are lots of tears but the book is not a tragedy. The stories are true and in all true stories there is laughter and there are tears. There are also wonderful characters who inhabit the town: Charlie and Toad, Swede and Shorty, Cat and Freddy, Father Hitler and Sister Austere and all the others. You'll meet them all in a place called Bloompatch.
