Signed by author with both real and pen names. ; From dust jacket flap: . . . Many of the tales in this book come from Tennessee where the author's maternal family originated. Others are from notes taken down during the years. The tales are written by a born raconteur in the American folkloric tradition - where stories are transmitted from generation to generation and enjoyed verbally, though sometimes never recorded. Here they are recorded for the enjoyment of the reader, who may just spot a story that has been drifting through his own family for years. Mr. Otis started this book some 30 years ago when an accident prevented him from taking a fishing trip with a buddy. He decided to write down the tales they would tell one another during the trip, and thereby developed a hobby of collecting odd and unususal tales picked up from many people and places. Actually born in "Grandma's Garden, " Mr. Otis has carried these tales back home because of their comfortable association. ; 202 pages; Signed by Author
