Now, his voice will live on forever....
"I'm sure I never said to myself: 'Now, Jim--why don't you sit down and write a poem.' It's still a mystery to me, but I think probably it's something that happened by accident--like a lot of things have happened in my life."
So begins this delightful collection of poetry by America's best-loved actor, Jimmy Stewart. The poems document a life that isn't too different from yours or mine.
Jimmy Stewart won the hearts of generations of movie viewers with a confused innocence and stammering delivery that made his acting seem genuine and effortless. Somehow he managed to make the boy next door into a national hero. Now, in Jimmy Stewart and His Poems, the consummate Everyman reads tales from his everyday life.
From fishing trips and dog stories to a hilarious account of a photo safari where the camera was lost to a hungry hyena, the poems are related in Jimmy Stewart"s inimitable voice...
The truly keepsake AudioBook confirms what we all expected--that the real Jimmy Stewart is every bit as endearing as the film characters he's portrayed.
"Jimmy Stewart and His Poems" is a perfect gift, one that fans will treasure as much as Jimmy Stewart's timeless performances.
