What use is life if we can't laugh about it? Storyteller and author Barry Jones uses his new collection of short stories and essays to point out the absurdities of everyday life. Some stories are true, some are fiction, and some are a blend that makes readers question just how much magic really exists in the caves of Wales or old homes of Tennessee.
It is from the middle Tennessee area that Jones draws inspiration for his most charming series of stories: children's ghost tales based on historical events. These legends have been told on late-night tours of famous haunts and are guaranteed to enthrall children and adults alike.
In addition to the bizarre and the terrifying, the third part of the collection is based upon Jones's real-life adventures. Jones chronicles his youth in Wales, the trials-some literal-of university life, and his journey across the pond to Tennessee. Jones never loses his humor, but he does add ruminations on the serious events of his life and his worries over the future. More Words upon a Tombstone starts hilariously and ends poignantly, and it takes readers on an unforgettable journey in between.
