With his mellifluous voice, flawless delivery, and master story-telling style, Mr. Keillor once again delivers with his Four Seasons tableau... especially with this single, fourth disc: "Winter".
This compact disc contains in it's five stories humourous, (sometimes nostalgic) samplings of all that is Winter: the crisp cold air, crunchy snow beneath one's boots, the excitement of an anticipated blizzard, the comaraderie of ice-fishing with buddies, as well as the deeper, emotional life-lessons that the Christmas season so often inspire.
The artwork is beautiful and the folio alone is a delight in itself.
This offering will leave you filled with the kind of heartwarming mirth that glows from within, like hot cocoa on a cold December afternoon... shared with a very funny friend.
These tales, told in Keillor's well-known reflective, recollective style are monologues from original live broadcasts from his trademark "News from Lake Wobegon".
The stories are for everyone:
Those of us who live and/or grew-up in the Great Snowy North (you know, walking barefoot to school and back, through 3 feet of snow ...always uphill, BOTH ways!)
They're for others, too. Those who prefer their Winters on the warmer side... Equally enjoying these stories, without having to shovel the driveway!

Mirth is defined as "Gladness and gaiety, especially when expressed by laughter."
"A heart-warming humour."
In this regard Garrison Keillor is The Master.
Whatever the season.
