This is a great collection of Bill's stories from when he was a journalist for the Milwaukee Journal. These stories are all about his life experiences growing up in Wisconsin. They will certainly make you laugh! I had several strange looks at work when I burst out laughing a few times at these stories. Bill is a great writer and I have enjoyed all of his books so far that he has brought to audio. Each book has some very skilled narrators as well. This one is no exception! Great audio talents in ...more

Bill Stokes was the type of journalist no one below the age of forty has ever known. Newspapers no longer pay for whimsy or life stories unless they are graphic and ugly with some blame attached.
Bill Stokes' book was published before the forty year olds were born but has now been made available for everyone to access electronically.
It is worth doing. I found it very interesting comparing the goings on in his columns in Wisconsin to what was happening at the same time in my corner of Scotland. I

Written years ago but still great today

I’ve read a few of Bill Stokes short stories and I’ve enjoyed them all. I didn’t grow up in Wisconsin or even near it. You don’t have to be from Wisconsin to enjoy the caliber of writing that Stokes provides in Hi-Ho Silver, Anyway.

This book reminds me of the golden age of the newspaper columnist. This art is seemingly going away and sadly I’m a part of the reason why. I don’t have a newspaper subscription, and I get all of my news from multiple sources onl

Hi-Ho Silver, Anyway
: Bill Stokes

A fun collection of articles from the past. Soe of these I had read before and some were new. I really enjoyed this book.

The narration was well done. MacLeod Andrews , R. C. Bray , James Foster , Joe Hempel , Stefan Rudnicki , David Stifel did a fantastic job of bringing these tales to life!!
