Summary
In a series of short, often funny lyrical pieces, author Glenda Watters explores small-town East Texas folklore and mythos, bringing them together with her own eventful upbringing to create many memorable vignettes with a flare of what it is like to live within the Piney Woods. Watters unites poignant pieces of her childhood and relates them to folk tales originating in the depths of the south, particularly in and around Timpson, her East Texas hometown. She presents all manner of stories overheard in a lifetime, including local legends and jokes, and connects them in a humorous way to elements of the events that make up an actual life, shortening the divide between what is real and false in a poetic way. At times deeply personal or outright hilarious, each of these stories bleeds a depth of cultural heritage and precisely crafted syntax that make them something truly special.
