Editorial Reviews

North Carolina storyteller Donald Davis is like a favorite uncle who has a wealth of stories that may not entirely be true but are too entertaining not to believe. Davis' long, leisurely tales are told with great amusement and deadpan humor, and listeners will find themselves hooting with laughter as Davis narrates the adventures of notorious Uncle Frank as he provides a tongue-in-cheek history lesson and imparts some eyebrow-raising advice on dealing with politicians in "Uncle Frank Invents the Electron Microscope" and outwits a pair of traveling salesmen in "Uncle Frank and the Crown Feed Boys".

Publisher's Summary

In the hills of Appalachia, humor and wisdom are mixed up forever in funny, wise stories that seem to grow more lustrous with each telling. Here are two of the best: "Uncle Frank Invents the Electron Microphone", Appalachian folk wisdom rolled into one of Davis' funniest stories; "Uncle Frank and the Crown Feed Boys", Davis' legendary Uncle Frank teaches a couple of traveling salesmen the lesson of their lives.
