"Ever since Bailey White began telling her stories on National Public Radio's All Things Considered in the summer of 1990, the letters and phone calls have been pouring in. 'I just gotta get more of Bailey white,' one listener wrote. Another told us: 'Bailey White is a national treasure, a Southern find.... She leave me laughing out loud. Please, ' she finished, 'Tell me how I can get a tape of her NPR broadcasts.' At last, it is here. A collection of the South Georgia school teacher's finest essays."
