Sherpe is a storyteller of a country life that has all but disappeared.
Walk with him down a country lane filled with memories of an earlier time.
Howard Sherpe's story telling newspaper columns are gathered here,
into a strong book that celebrates rural people and their lives. It celebrates
others, too, those so-called ordinary people who on closer look, are revealed
as not ordinary at all. Howard's quiet interviewing style captures people
who are real, brings them alive, and gives them voice. These are voices
we all need to hear.
This collection of Howard Sherpe's popular newspaper column is like
holding a long, leisurely conversation with a trusted neighbor. Funny,
lyrical and wise, Sherpe's writing takes us to a time when life, if not
exactly simpler, seemed to make more sense.
