The Indie Book of the Day for 18th of March, 2013!
Bestselling author Tracy Heath recounts some of her most treasured and entertaining stories from her childhood in the Eastern Oregon desert. In this first book of her Country Misadventures series, you will be introduced to a pleasant wasteland where pheasants stroll through the neighborhood, and sagebrush and barbed wire fences are silhouetted in the vibrant, setting sun.
She tells about being bullied by a steer: “Since he wasn’t a pet we promptly named him ‘Reddy.’ It had a nice ring to it and had next to nothing to do with the fact that his eyes glowed red.”
And find out what happens when a grade school child gets behind the wheel: “Well, when all you need is one right foot that knows what it’s doing, it’s a sure shame to be stuck with a pair of lefties.”
You’ll even read about coping with psychotic chickens: “So we placed an order with the local feed store for ‘assorted chicks.’….It wasn’t until quite a while later that we learned the true meaning of ‘assorted.’”
You will find the stories intriguing and original. As you chuckle your way through them, these country anecdotes may bring back a few humorous memories from your own childhood.
