About the Book

In our sound-byte society, short stories and poems will always have a place, especially when they've been penned by the likes of Terry Burns. This, the first of four in The Sagebrush Collection, is a compilation of fictional, autobiographical, and fiction-based-on-fact shorts and poems.

Through fluent cowboy-speak, author Terry Burns shares his heart with these sometimes somber, often humorous, always engaging glimpses of life. From short stories about time machines and troubled marriages to poems of roses and hauntingly cold winds, you’ll find much to savor on the pages within.

A born storyteller, Burns style is natural, conversational, and above all real. He’s a fifth generation Irish tale-weaver and a fourth generation Texas Teller of Tall Tales. Storytelling comes as natural to him as breathing.

Come along with Terry as he journeys “On the Road Home”. You’ll be glad you did.

My Review

This book arrived in my mailbox only last week, so it's on my TBR pile. I'm looking forward to reading it and will post a review then. I enjoyed Saint's Roost, so I'm eager to read what Terry has to offer.

  1. Thanks for the review, Adam, I look forward to your comments. I was pleased that someone thought enough of my short work to want to do a collection of it. The set contains new work, particularly the novella in the back of each book and much of the short work, but also contains work that has been published in a wide variety of venues. I'm very pleased that Port Yonder wanted me to do it.
