Life is transitory. People move from one point to the next. What happens in that transition? And what choices do we have in the process? In these eight brand-new stories, we follow men and women in transition, sometimes by choice, sometimes imposed by unforeseen circumstances. From the Oregon trail to an interstate in Mississippi, from a Tennessee highway to the plains of Texas, people move for better or for worse. The point is. They move. They change. They adapt. They engage in that most human of acts. They migrate and keep moving.
Mrs. Parsley is a master story teller and this first collection shows that she always works hard to tell tales that are entertaining, informative, and a little off the beaten path. From alligators to ghosts, From bears to sprites. Like the Big Cypress Swamp itself, Mrs. Parsley reflects the wild and often unpredictable nature of the plants, animals, and other magical creatures that inhabit this hidden and often misunderstood world. Not your usual fairy tales, Mrs. Parsley's stories are meant to be shared with an audience who loves the unknown and the unheard of, the strange and the humorous. It's all part of the magic of storytelling. And sometimes, as Mrs. Parsley herself has learned, the magic is real.
