       Additional Information  
     
      Meet Jake Strider--a cantankerous old country sage with an acerbic wit and a ribald sense of humor. The Old Man's Letters chronicles Strider's more notable correspondence to his son over a two-decade period. It's a hilarious, remarkable perceptive panorama of rural life, and the world outside it--A combination of down-home country humor and slick, sophisticated wit that will tickle your funny bone and touch your heart. The Clear Creek Press Second Edition offers many new stories, an exciting new cover, ivory parchment paper, and deluxe fonts throughout.
    Jake's letters run the gamut from bizarre tales of crazy friends to poignant social and political points of view. In between it all, he paints a portrait of country living so vivid that you'll taste the rain on the wind--and for an hour or two, you will become part of America's heartland.
