Tales of a Texas Boy

Rated 4.50/5 based on 2 reviews
Little Eddie tells some almost true Tall Tales set in West Texas of the 1930s. Guess what's true and what Eddie fudged on. Was it about the bear? Cage McNatt's prize sow? The skunk in the cornpatch? Guaranteed for a chuckle and maybe a tear here and there. More

Born in Eugene, OR and a grad of the UofO, I still made a success of my life by constantly changing jobs and cashing in miserable 401K earnings. Finally, I decided to hell with it. If I'm going to be poor, I might as well be a writer.

Reviews of Tales of a Texas Boy by Marva Dasef

Anita Lewis reviewed on July 8, 2015

Young Eddie tells us stories of his childhood. The simplicity combined with the acceptance of his every day and awe of his pretty wild times makes for a wonderful read. I absolutely loved this book, especially the caring that people showed for their animals and for one another. The author tells us that the stories may be a bit embellished, but they certainly seemed very real. I enjoyed the sense of having been close to experiences of a time and place where I could never visit.

Eddie has some tall tales, but that's what happens when you grow up in Texas. Personally, I believe in the flying pigs, but I'm not so sure about the bear. A lot of fun, and in between the shady stories, there's some good inside knowledge about Depression era Texas. Give 'er a read.
