The Many Mini Adventures of a Small-Town Mailman

Publication Date: 24/09/2014
RRP  $18.02 $17.50
The mail must go through! And it does, in this humorous look at the real-life experiences of mailmen in a small Southern town that goes by the zip code 72058. Greenbrier, smack dab in the middle of Arkansas, offers a hotbed of short stories about mail delivery. "Neither rain, nor sleet, nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds" is the unofficial motto of the U.S. Postal Service. But see what happens when the unexpected occurs! Chapters include stories about the variety of customers and their mailboxes; the kids, pets, critters, wildlife, and co-workers encountered; the responsibilities of the job; the difficulties of weather; and the heavy mail volume during holiday seasons. There are also descriptions of some of the "unique" mail that must be dealt with, such as live bees, broken juice bottles, and even addressed beach balls. Most stories come from mailman Jesse Lee Hatfield's personal experiences, things that happened to his wife, Suzy, on her rural route, and from co-workers at the post office. The book is embellished with photographs, and written over a five-year span covering the 23 years that Jesse has been a carrier. Says the author, "Our small post office is just like any everyday business office, with one exception: Together, we know EVERYONE in town!" Publisher's website: http: //
