Robert James Waller began the material in this book in the summer of 1983. He didn't set out to be a writer. He just needed to put down on paper his feelings about the people, animals, and places he cared about.

A work of nonfiction, this book lets you into the mind and world of Robert James Waller.

If nothing else, this man can weave a picture with words in a way that puts you right there. "Old Songs" is a collection of short stories Waller wrote while living in Iowa. They run from thoughts when he and his wife were cleaning out their daughter's room after she had left home, to his views on travel and why it can stir your soul. This one will stay on my library shelf!

From the author of "The Bridges of Madison County".

This is a collection of essays which Robert James Waller has written over time about all those little things in life.

I usually ditch essay collections for reasons of boredom and unfulfilled satisfaction BUT this book is an exception!!!! I loved this book so much I just got another book from Mr. Waller! His style is laid-back, down to earth, earnest and honest. Those who read this book will see a sensitivity and an obligation to great writing that is rarely seen anymore. The essays contained in this book are of various subjects but with the same eloquence of writing that makes Mr. Waller stand out. I highly recommend this as a great read.
