    1. Tales of a Texas Boy is a collection of 21 reminiscences of rural life in the Texas panhandle during the Depression, told in the voice of an eleven year old remembering his childhood as an elderly man (modeled after the author's father). Each tale is short and complete in itself, and all add up to a convincing evocation of what life was like during those days in that area of Texas. The boy, of course, would not dwell on hardship, deprivation, or lack of creature comforts. From his point of vie [...]

    2. I’d only listened to the first three stories before knowing it was going to get five stars. Ms. Dasef has captured the fine points of country living at its best (or maybe I should say worst) in her new book on tape, Tales Of A Texas Boy.This story is available in paperback, Kindle, and Audible Audio Edition. I opted for the audio version and love it. The presentation is very well done giving the boy a believable voice. There is a bit of history and enlightenment before each short tale. The sto [...]

    3. This is a wonderful, entertaining read for all ages. Written in an easygoing, true-to-life personal style, I often felt while reading that I was sitting down with the "Texas Boy" and having a one-to-one chat about times that are now truly historic. Several times I became so engrossed in the book's world that I almost experienced the that long gone boyhood (and I'm a woman). How different things were back then, and yet, and yet I'm looking forward to more from Marva Dasef, she never fails to deli [...]

    4. A wonderful collection of short stories told through the eyes of a child which felt poignant and heartfelt throughout. Highly recommended.

    5. Loved this book!!!! And so interesting to learn how people lived mostly by hard work and banding together. A time lost but cherished. All told by members of the family.The only part I didn't enjoy was when it ended. I wanted the book to never end. Will read again

    6. Tales of a Texas Boy: Large Print by Marva Dasef is a delightful collection of vignettes about a boy growing up on a farm in Texas during the great depression. While each chapter can be read separately as its own short story, they come together to give the reader a picture of family and community on a small farm in West Texas. Despite the hard times, the stories are all uplifting, some poignant and some laugh-out-loud funny.The affection and warmth the author has for her characters illuminates e [...]

    7. Young Eddie tells us stories of his childhood. The simplicity combined with the acceptance of his every day and awe of his pretty wild times makes for a wonderful read. I absolutely loved this book, especially the caring that people showed for their animals and for one another. The author tells us that the stories may be a bit embellished, but they certainly seemed very real. I enjoyed the sense of having been close to experiences of a time and place where I could never visit.

    8. Marva Dasef collected these recollections of her father's life when he was an octogenarian, therefore the incidents can ramble from his early childhood to his service as a veterinarin in World War I. Still it was an amazingly good book. A wonderful read for anyone who enjoys books like "Little House on the Prairie" or "Tom Sawyer". A great bit of nostalgia for seniors too.

    9. A perfect bedtime read! Each chapter is a short story that can be started and finished before you get too sleepy and without getting so invested you can't put it down.
