She is a living icon of the family storytelling renaissance in America. And to hear her tell it, Kathryn Tucker Windham owes it all to her father, the small-town banker, school-board chairman, and Sunday school superintendent who always came home with a story. These stories celebrate the father he was and the stories that are his legacy. Moving from vignette to story, Mrs. Windham remembers:
Her father's Panama hat
Greeting her father as he returned from business trips, bringing her gifts of new books
Learning to speak French
And more colorful memories of a remarkable relationship
Lovingly, her father instilled in his daughter the gifts of keen observation and a facility for language that reward Ms. Windham's listeners with a unique story experience.
