Tales From The Terlingua Porch by Blair Pittman. Foreword by Bill Ivey, Illustrations by Mark Kneeskern.
"Life just happens on a porch overlooking the rest of the world, especially when that world is invited to slow down long enough to sit a spell, listen to a story, or play a song...

"The stories in this book are written like Blair speaks: honest and sincere. Some stories are tough, most are happy - all of them reflect the true spirit of Big Bend, and the unique people that live out here..." - from the foreword
