My grandfather has since passed away so I am collecting this Cully Gage series so I can read them again.
Dr. Van Riper suffered a speech impediment as a child; he stuttered. As an adult, he founded the speech pathology program at Western Michigan University. In the 1980's this was renowned as one of the best programs in the country. Van Riper State Park is a another family legacy near where he grew up.
I always enjoyed the author's keen insight into human nature and personalities that never seem to change with time. Many of the stories have a wonderful pathos and irony to them that leaves the reader laughing but truly understanding what life was like back then. Keeping the wolf from the door was pretty close to reality.
Many of these stories are "earthy" and should be read first before reading them to small ears; "Old Blue Balls", for example. All of the Cully Gage books are well worth the money and I would recommend all you can still buy. Happy reading!
