Adventures of an Arkansawyer, Ebook


Well, Adventures of an Arkansawyer is finally out in ebook. You can save about $5 on it if you prefer electronic format over print. This is my memoir up to the time I left Arkansas. Eventually there will be a second installment that covers post-Arkansas memories. I’m pretty sure that one will be called “Tales of An ArkansawTraveller.”

It’s clear in the book description that the first third of this book is a revised and expanded version of the Days of Beer ebook. The last two-thirds are all new and true adventures set mostly around and about the farm where I grew up. So if you already have “Days of Beer,” keep this in mind.


Among the new pieces that very few people are likely to have seen are such tales as: “Be Careful What You Ask For,” which reveals the time my grandfather tried to kill me, Snake Charmer, in which I introduced my mom to a pet grass snake at the dinner table, and “Of Cats, Kittens, and Coon Hounds,” in which a feral cat came to visit and was met with staunch resistance from our resident pack of Coon Hounds. (Remember, the vast majority of these stories, while real, are at least slightly “tongue-in-cheek.”

If anyone is interested, the Amazon link is here.

Congrats on the pub! Sounds like a good read.

Charles Gramlich said...

Greg, I hope it is. I put a lot of work into it.

Good thing you didn't study law heh? That would be a kind of cheesy title "Adventures of an about to be Arkanasawyer Lawyer?"

Maybe it's time to see if the kindle still works, snooping in on an adults youth is sometimes enlightening about the man you've become.

Lisa said...

I would really be interested Charles, I'll check it out whether I can buy eBook or not from here, and ha :) to tales of Arkansawyer :)

David Cranmer said...

Keep 'em coming, Charles. I enjoy reading your memoirs.

Charles Gramlich said...

Mark, Dale Bumpers, who grew up in Charleston and was a lawyer as well as a politician, already wrote a book called "Best Lawyer in a one Lawyer town."

Lisa, these days most of these books do get offered through amazon all over the world. They are sold through local affiliates.

David C., thanks, man

Oscar, thanks, man. I hope you'll find it funny!

Jodi, I was actually kind of surprised I had so many funny stories from childhood.

Chris said...

Just grabbed my copy. I have no doubt I will enjoy it as much as I have everything I've read of yours. I always look forward to your work, man.
