Angelina River Press Presents
The Wild Part
a novel based on real people
From the preface:
While this is a work of fiction, it is based on my own adventures in the wild part of Venezuela. In writing this story, I drew inspiration from Jerzy Kosiński’s wonderful book, The Painted Bird, especially from the way Kosiński turned his experiences in wandering around Europe into a novel. As Kosiński did, I write from memory filtered through imagination.

Saving a Songbird is a collection of short stories with a twist: they are nonfiction. The writer constructed the tales by using techniques of traditional short story writers. Each story tells of the narrator’s dealings with unusual people he knew, many in various Venezuelan villages, others in towns in Texas. Several of the stories have won first place in national contests. Jerry's brother wrote a memoir telling of some of the same events.

This is a tale of people in the wildest part of the American frontier, the Big Thicket, where law is sometimes only a rumor. There is Venna who has the reputation of roaming the Thicket at night as a wolf and witching rain out of the stars. There’s Lucius Simmons, an ex-slave and the woman he loves who struggle to find a preacher willing to marry a mixed race couple. There’s Tim Coke who discovers some disturbing family secrets and who must challenge friends and family to prevent a hanging.
