Overview

Tuscaloosa Stories is a compilation of short tales about the challenges and excitement of living in a thriving Southern city. The stories cover recent history and stretch back to the earliest Native American settlers in the area. Find yourself on the fifty-yard line of an Alabama Crimson Tide football game, and hold your breath at the danger a tugboat faces as it ploughs the frozen depths of the Black Warrior River to make a daring rescue. These stories appeal to young readers as well as adults.
