Inhaltsangabe: Colored by reminiscence and humor, "Want a Frog?" paints a lively picture of southern culture as experienced directly by storyteller Tom Summers. Traveling through self-contained chapters, the reader takes a trip through history into some memorable narratives and photographs. They represent eras from the author's more than seven decades of living in South Carolina. Examples of the twenty-four chapters include: bygone days when youngsters had to make many of their own toys, a day at the beach when World War II ended, and army life in the late-1950s. Summers's more contemporary years bring vibrancy to some personal stories that are flavored by family nurture, resources for inner growth, and vocational interest in social justice. In this zestful book of recollections, he sets a table that intends for the meal to both tickle the funny bone as well as touch depths in the human spirit. These personally experienced accounts are rooted in his firm belief that, above all else, we humans indeed are "story creatures."
