Simply Charming! 17 Nov. 2007
By Nicole A. Seitz - Published on
Format: Paperback
Simply put, I was charmed by this book. The Cave, the Cabin & the Tattoo Man is a comfortable place you want to curl up with and retreat back to. The thoughts and delivery of the main character, nine-year-old Timmy, was utterly believeable. The events, credible. The pace, slow and steady like an endless childhood summer. Toward the end, the book got even better for me...riveting. Pick this one up--it feels like you're reading a true story or possibly your own childhood memories.

Oh, and I laughed out loud on the airplane as I was reading this book when little tongue-tied Timmy recited John 3:16 in front of the whole congregation!

This is truly an ageless book. Read it if you're 8 or 98.

Can't wait for the next installment of Kentucky Summers!

-- Nicole Seitz, author of The Spirit of Sweetgrass and Trouble the Water

This is a winner! 24 Jun. 2008
By E. Correll - Published on
Format: Paperback
A friend I know that teaches middle school age students said she had her students read this book. In over twenty years of teaching this is the ONLY book that every single boy in her classes loved! She says this is a must have title for anyone trying to target that group of readers.

A Light and Fun Read 24 Dec. 2009
By K. Avery - Published on
Format: Paperback
I purchased this book after meeting the author, Tim Callahan at his booth during my town's local 4th of July festival. We talked for a moment, and he convinced me to give this first book of his Kentucky Summers collection a try. He said that anybody who grew up in small town America during the late 50's or 60's would find his story interesting. Having grown up in a township in Ohio, with my own memories of hiking, camping, swimming in a creek, catching crayfish and that childhood adventure which every summer would bring, this story did not disappoint! While it doesn't have some deep plot, it doesn't need it. The summer adventures of Timmy are ones which are easy to relate to, and they bring back one's own reminiscence of a more innocent time of life. The essence of this book, and the Kentucky Summers series captures the fun, romance, and innocence of being a kid again. A great read for all ages! I have read the series and look forward to this author's future books!

Morgan County, KY 31 Mar. 2012
By Prinlyn - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
My mother and her family were from Morgan County, KY. We visited briefly when I was a child but spent most of our time at family reunions in Somerset,(actually Poplarville) KY, where my father was from. I have always wanted to go back to Morgan County - my mother's grandmother was a Redwine - a city in Morgan Co. My family's homestead was closer to Lenox. I have bought Mr. Callahan's book and hope it takes me to this place that I long to visit. Maybe the book will be the inspiration that actually gets me there. As a former Language Arts teacher and principal, I am excited about the comments in the reviews. I will say adieu tonight to hurry and begin reading this book on my Kindle!

awesome 30 July 2010
By Rosemary Rickett - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved this book. I am 65 years old and I have lived in Kentucky 58 of those years. I can relate to Timmy and the love he has for his grandparents. When I read this book, the details were so awesome that it was like I was right there while it was happening. I hope all elementary school children will read this. Mr. Callahan is an awesome writer.
