Made up of true stories ranging all the way from the ins and outs of daily life in the Mississippi Delta to bona fide brushes with history, Anne Hart Preus's Stories from the Hart is a vivid account of one girl's life growing up during some of the most formative years in our nation's history, the 1950s and '60s. The reader is introduced to characters from days gone by--family, friends, and other townfolk from rural Tallahatchie County, Mississippi--some of whom came and went quickly, and others who stayed a while. Although intensely personal, the memoir is set against a backdrop of social change, including events from the Emmett Till murder trial and trips to Memphis to see Elvis Presley and the Beatles. The tales in Stories from the Hart may be funny, dramatic, or occasionally even wistful, but they are always touching. Whether Anne Hart Preus is reminiscing about holiday traditions and unexpected snow days, recounting fascinating and endearing town characters, or remembering what it was like to grow up in a community where everyone knew everyone, her natural and engaging style weaves compelling stories that will keep readers coming back for more.
