Critic Reviews

Bodett, Alaskan humorist ( The End of the Road), returns to the old garage in the small Alaskan town of End of the Road, a local landmark where the colorful characters in this miscellany gather to tell and retell their stories....The stories, like the characters, are plain and simple, evocative of life in a frontier state. Readers will place Bodett, a radio personality, in the company of such commentators on Americana as Garrison Keillor. ( Publishers Weekly)"Meeting his characters is like meeting people in a small town with real-life pleasures and problems. Junkyard owner Argus Winslow took 25 years to ask Ruby McClay for a date, and never understood the 'indelicacy' of bringing rabbit stew to an annual Easter egg hunt. Emmit Frank, city manager, succumbs to the beauty and natural pleasures (fishing) of Alaska...." ( School Library Journal)

Always good even the third time

I have all of these on cassette but when I saw them here I bought them again and listen on frequent flights. I hope Tom writes more stories someday. I would like them unabridged better.
