About

This third collection of true stories from award-winning journalist and novelist Bryan Woolley with an introduction by author John Nichols includes the deeply moving title story "Generations," as well as his features and personality profiles from The Dallas Morning News. In this volume of twenty-seven pieces, including the winner of a 1995 Missouri Lifestyles Journalism Award, "Poets Lariat," Woolley explores Dashiell Hammett's San Francisco and recalls the lost golden age of Mineral Wells, Texas. He returns to the site of a mysterious 1947 crash, believed to be that of a UFO in Roswell, New Mexico. He meets such people as musician and mystery writer Kinky Friedman, talks to residents of Alpine, Texas, about their famous new neighbor, Robert James Waller, author of Bridges of Madison County, and mourns the retirement of cartoonist Gary Larson.
