    Annotation: "In a small Southern town, a teenage girl anxiously waits for her date to arrive. A little boy meets his dream dog in Central Park. A woman fights to save the life of a child who has her lover's eyes. Best friends discuss the theoretical murder of husbands. In these never-before-published stories, written by Truman Capote when he was in his teens and twenties, Capote-the-Writer is already recognizable. His prose: witty, poignant, and crystal-clear. His characters: solitary, observant young children; charming and naeive young women whom you could imagine befriending Holly Golightly; aging urban sophisticates worn down by cynicism. His settings: the rural South of his childhood and the cosmopolitan New York of the 1940s. This splendid collection offers readers to opportunity to see the confident first steps of one of the 20th century's most-acclaimed writers onto the path that would lead to his most beloved works"-- Learn More

  8. A Bubba on Polecat Bay and Stories of Other Incorrigible Characters by Elmo D. Ziebach
    $19.95

    Duck hunting, deer hunting, turkey hunting, or fishing, if any of these endeavors are going on there probably is a Bubba involved. South Alabama has always been a haven for Bubba types. These fellows spend their entire lives climbing in and out of boats or traveling to hunting camps. They all have the same thing in common: given the opportunity they will do some dumb stuff while pursuing their sport. The Mobile Bay Causeway, one of the locations for a few of the stories lying within these pages, has seen its share of dumb stuff over the years, but Bubbas aren't confined to that wonderful strip of dredged mud, no they can be found in many locals throughout the south. Included within these pages are stories about a few of these Bubbas, both the Causeway variety like the ones on Polecat Bay, and their hillbilly counterparts from upstate a ways.

    The stories are all true as best as I can remember and what I could not remember, heck, I just made up.

  9. The Second Head of Chocolata by Elmo D. Ziebach
    $16.00

    Set in South Alabama The Second Head of Chocolata is a series of short stories written about a man and a boy. The author wrote a few of these short stories as the boy recalled tales the man had told him about the hunting and fishing adventures of his youth around the Mobile area. Then the author tells of the boy's life as he grew up hunting, fishing, water skiing, and frog gigging in and about the rivers and marshes of the Mobile River Delta and Mobile Bay. Some of the stories are serious, some are sentimental, and some are meant to entertain. All the stories are based on real incidents but the exact truth may be absent here and there due to the diminishing capacities of the boy. Some names have been changed to protect the author from being abused by his friends who were involved with the real incidents.

  10. The Man Who Planted Trees (Paperback) by Jean Giono
    $10.00

    In 1910 while hiking through the wild lavender in a windswept, desolate valley in Provence, a man comes across a shepherd called Elzéard Bouffier. Staying with him, he watches Elzéard sorting and then planting hundreds of acorns as he walks through the wilderness.

    Ten years later, after the war, he visits the shepherd again and sees the young forest he has created spreading slowly over the valley. Elzéard's solitary, silent work continues and the narrator returns year after year to see the miracle he is gradually creating: a verdant, green landscape that is a testament to one man's creative instinct.
