Open this book to any page and you will meet an unforgettable character. Turn a page and be drawn at once into a fascinating time and place. You may find yourself in Big Beaver, Michigan in the 1950s or on a windswept bluff at Ringa-Ringa, the world’s southernmost golf course. Wherever you are you encounter unforgettable characters, like the tender-hearted creator of one of the world’s most beloved songs or the frenetic painter who dances on canvas. Or the mechanic who spun a fish story into the myth of an Indian chief that endures to this day.
A marvelous book in the fullest sense of that word... the stories resound in perfectly tuned harmony to the beat of the human heart with insight, poignancy and laugh-out-loud humor.
