    1. I am being generous with the three-star rating, because I can't give half stars. The rules of rounding dictate a 3 star award.I enjoyed a few of these vignettes; but the ones I did not enjoy really hindered the rest of the book. The story telling, in some cases, was almost hyper-detailed, almost minutae, while others were rushed and, it seemed to me, hackneyed.

    2. Overall, this was a pretty good read. I enjoyed the topic quite a bit. I could tell that the author's heart lies in southwestern Missouri, though.

Quick, enjoyable read.
