Now including the BONUS story, "A Redneck Romance"!
Now enjoy more comical tales in this combination set of Tracy Heath’s first two books, Bum Steer and Bedoggled.
Tracy Heath recounts some of her most treasured and entertaining stories from her childhood in the Eastern Oregon desert. You will be taken to a pleasant wasteland where pheasants stroll through the neighborhood, and sagebrush and barbed wire fences are silhouetted in the vibrant, setting sun.
She tells about being bullied by a steer: “Since he wasn't a pet we promptly named him 'Reddy.' It had a nice ring to it and had next to nothing to do with the fact that his eyes glowed red.”
Experience the face-palm moments of becoming a dog owner: “Considering his klutzy habits and ill-mannered behavior, [Bowser’s] knowledge of the indoors was limited. But his understanding of life in general was lacking, so we should have seen something coming.”
And get ready for hard-core fishing, folks, because fishing’s not for wimps: “Dripping piteously, the fishers reached the foot of the trail and took a minute to gaze up the steep, switchbacked path, the shadows already growing long around them. Crying seemed a viable option….”
Get a kick out of these escapades and several other comical stories in Tracy’s take on country life. You will find the stories intriguing and original. As you chuckle your way through them, these country anecdotes may bring back a few humorous memories from your own childhood.
