I first read one of these stories in an airline magazine. I figured the sample was the best of the bunch, but ordered the book anyway. Story after story, Jerry Clower immerses you in the life of the deep south and tells you stories that you will think about for years afterward-- and you'll laugh with each recalling!

All the stories from years back are here, in this book! Also, an enlightening interview with Clower. I bought this for my dad for Father's Day and plan to find my own copy. If you want light-hearted, meaningful reading about times past, this is the book for you. This compilation is well-organized i.e. Ledbetter family section, coon huntin' section, etc. Find one of these and put it in a safe place. These are hard to come by and are definitely something to treasure.

My favorite part of this book was the first 49 pages where Jerry Clower becomes the story. This long interview with him takes you on a journey beyond his charming wit and storytelling.

Clower, in his modesty and ole boy ways, belies how fascinating his own story is. Stepping beyond the yarns he spins on stage, he takes you on a trip through the South and introduces you to a string of people he has met along the way.

Join Jerry in a chat with William Faulkner or Will Davis Campbell (Will D. Campbell, author of Brother to a Dragonfly).

Take a nostalgic visit to Jerry and Homerline when they were tenants at primitive artist Theora Hamblett's home in Oxford, Mississippi.

Clower loves to tell a story and he's made a career out of doing it well. But the best story is the one he admits he has been privileged to live.

"Stories From Home" is pricless.

Before The Blue Collar Comedy Tour there was Jerry Clower.

Clean, family friendly, and classic down home southern humor.

A great gift.
