How do you handle a crazy jackass? Eddie knows. If you ask Eddie, he'll tell you pigs can fly and show you where to find real mammoth bones. Take his word for it when he tells you always to bet on the bear. These are things he learned while dreaming of becoming a cowboy in West Texas during the Depression. Through Eddie, the hero of Tales of a Texas Boy, we find that growing up is less about maturity and more about roping your dreams. Hold on tight. It's a bumpy ride. A wonderful listen for anyone who enjoys audiobooks like Little House on the Prairie or Tom Sawyer. A great bit of nostalgia for seniors, too.

- Janice "Rating scale: 5=Loved it, 4=Liked it, 3=Ok, 2=Disappointed, 1=Hated it. I look for well developed characters, compelling stories."
The stories themselves brought back many memories of growing up on a farm. Many a laugh at the boy's antics.
The boy, Eddie, has an open, honest, and fun-loving way about him.
I loved the voice the narrator gave him. You could actually visualize the scene through the voice. Donny is a natural storyteller.
I loved each story and liked the break in between each giving a bit of enlightenment or history.
