More Tales from My Back Porch
There can be nothing more satisfying than settling down to hear a tale told on a warm summer evening, seated on a back porch with a cool drink and some great company. This is where Darrell Case excels, as he weaves his magical craft with words delicately placed on the page and stretches your imagination to its limits.
In More Tales from My Back Porch he paints pictures that drop the reader so perfectly into the heart of the action that you may think you are an integral part of it. And as he harks back to an America of a generation or more ago, with 28 hypnotic tales that give more than a gentle nod to the great writers of that era, each one will leave you wanting more.
From Trig’s Smoking Wheels to Running the Bull, Darrell finds a way to deal with sometimes tricky subject matter and turn it into a reminiscence of a bygone era that many of us can relate to and enjoy again and again
