Author, David Nelson is the Cowboy Poet Laureate of Tennessee. He has performed across America and now brings his performing art into written form. You will laugh, cry, and think as he writes on array of topics common to all people. He also has a storytelling section about his wife, whom he nicknames "Trixie." Poems in the book can be read around a campfire or a dinner table. The content is appropriate for all ages, except the story called the Psychiatrist. David Nelson is known as the 'Biggest Liar in East Tennessee,' so read along and try to figure what is fact and what is fiction. Either way, he hopes you 'laugh till you leak.'

Charlene's Review:

As a fan of Mr. Nelson's previous book, The Shade Tree Choir, I eagerly anticipated his next project. With everything covered from horses to loose bowels, there is something for everyone to enjoy in his prose and stories. Mr. Nelson appears to be a very straight-forward, life-loving gentle man with a tremendous sense of humor. One of my favorite snippets was:

"There were gasps of air, ears laid back, and nostrils flared of course.
And if you think that was a sight to see, you should have seen my horse!"

Mr. Nelson delivers his stories with simplicity and just the right dose of light-hearted fun. Whether you read it around the campfire or alone in bed, his writings will leave you captivated. I would love to see him perform in person!

5 out of 5 stars.

  1. Thanks, Charlene for the great review. I hope others check it out and get a giggle or two or maybe kick back and think a bit. I appreciate your time and kindness.

  2. Cactus Bob Review
    I can't write a comment because I lived these poems and stories with David "Buffalo Bill" Nelson and Trixie (aka Queenie). If I was to say anything I'd say "I'd do it again in a New York Minute". I never got tired of the poems and stories. Kudos David!
