Kathryn wrote the coolest little memoir books...memories of a simpler time-she was born in 1918.

Here's what she had to say about housework...

My mother excelled at many things, but housekeeping ranked low on her list of interests.

My older sister used to laugh at watching Mother hurry to the front door to greet company, dusting with her petticoat as she went.

She considered ironing a waster of time. 'Just shake the garment out and walk fast', was her advice.
I loved this cute little book. Literally takes 2 hours to read

This is a wonderful little book on Southern superstitions told through the eyes of a child growing up in Depression in small town Alabama. Sweet and funny.

Kathryn Tucker Windham's book is charming as hers always are. Her stories of her childhood in the rural South evoke feelings of a simpler time when life moved at a slower pace and families and neighbors were closer.
I love Kathryn Tucker Windham. I've never had the pleasure of hearing her in person, but I've loved her recordings, so it was easy to imagine her voice with each of these tales.
I love Kathryn Tucker Windham and I can't wait to listen to her tell stories again in person again.

A very sweet book from one of Alabama's favorite storytellers
