Bradleyville My Hometown Reviews

Bradleyville Hometown

"James Leon Combs is a natural storyteller. And with this collection of short stories he has harvested the richness of the Ozarks - about his childhood in Bradleyville and about his travels out West. These stories are imbued with a southwest Missouri swagger that will keep a smile on every reader's face."

David Ledford Executive Editor Springfield News-Leader

"Live long enough, and you have experience for a book. Leon Combs has had enough for two-but he's able to tell it better than most folks can. His homage to his hometown of Bradleyville and growing up in a close-knit rural community is a sort of Ozarkian Our Town. It's history, adventure, reminiscence and recollections, memoirs and vignette, tribute and poetry in a single entertaining volume that gives insight into an age and aging."

Fred R. Pfister, retired Professor of English and Editor of The Ozarks Mountaineer

"Warm and witty, Leon Combs is the James Herriot of the Ozarks! With this beautifully written book, he has opened his heart to us and taken us on a journey into the Ozark hills and valleys of yesterday. His memories, rich with the humor and wisdom of America's heartland, give us a glimpse of our own foundations."
