Tales of a Texas Boy by Marva Dasef


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 read for anyone who enjoys books like “Little House on the Prairie” or “Tom Sawyer.” A great bit of nostalgia for seniors, too. Bonus story included.

Comes in Large Print, Kindle, and Audio, too. A perfect gift for Dad’s Day. Here’s the details straight from the author’s mouth…text:

Says Marva: The ebook is free on Kindle if you buy the paperback. Also, the freebie on Smashwords is using coupon HL34R through June 21st.

Says C. J.: This is a great, fun book, and anyone “country”, anyone who lived the times or had a mom or pop who lived that era, will totally appreciate this book.  A word of warning for you city-slickers and for the uninitiated, this book can really open your eyes to attitudes and actions you may find startling. But this was (and, in some places, still is) the America of your elders.

Also available at Smashwords, and, I think, there it’s free for download.
