In this second collection of Kosky tales, Pete once again explores the old traditional ballads to mine their riches for tall tales, wild nights, and a few back in the woods—wild men and women—antics. Pete is skillful at pulling readers into the history of a place and its people. When a character goes on a hunt, we can feel the crisp air and catch scent of gun powder, and we’d swear we’d actually been there ourselves. But if hunting isn’t your interest, we bet looking for gold or Sasquatch, seeing ghosts in caves, or dodging beer cans sailing across the room in a honkytonk just might! He tells it all, with vivid details and in carry-you-away beautiful language. Dip in this second collection, and you’ll be as delighted as you were with his first volume, Mountain Tales & River Stories. Pete Kosky is a champion storyteller and has the ribbons to prove it!
