Product Description Being Home: A Southwestern Almanac is a laugh-out-loud story collection made for radio featuring quirky characters shaped by the seasons, the desert landscape, and small-town living, making audiences feel right at home in the Mimbres Valley. From Brandon Johnson's mystifying encounter with a coyote to Ernesto Puro Corazon's 6th grade drive to school with his abuela in his Chevy Impala SS, Claussen captures moments and people that are sure to surprise and entertain. Review "Claussen once again delivers memorable storytelling that is fresh and entertaining.
