Summary, etc.:
You could drink a glass of milk straight from the cow, ride a dirt road in the back of an old pick-up truck, and sleep on the porch with a hound dog for company. A visit to Grandma's and Grandpa's almost always promised a great adventure on their farm. Let these Southern storytellers be your guides as you step back in time to the heartfelt innocence of a southern childhood ... a time when the rest of the world seemed far away and life was as clear as the morning dew on a ripe tomato.
