About the author:
Max Yoho has established himself as a witty writer from America's Heartland. A growing list of fans enjoy his off-beat sense of humor and mind boggling leaps of logic--often leaving readers laughing out loud. Max is a lifelong Kansan. He was born in Colony, Kansas, in 1934, and became a writer after 38 years as a machinist. Yoho's writing is humanly honest in the tradition of Mark Twain, and echoes the nostalgic coming-of-age humor of Jean Shepherd.

Me and Aunt Izzy

Doing Time at the Jesse James Hideout and Coal Mining Company

Authored by Max Yoho

Eleven-year old Jefferson Davis Johnson has been sentenced to a summer of “moral rehabilitation” under the watchful eye of his great aunt, Queen Isabella of Spain Johnson. A relic of the “roaring twenties,” this stern matriarch may have her own ideas about what a boy should learn. Will three-years perfect attendance in his Presbyterian Sunday School be enough to protect Jeffie from the evils of drink, a warpathing aborigine, and the bright-eyed tomboy, Pauline Potts? And, for Pete's sake, does any other boy have a relative who cohabits with the ghost of Jesse James? The setting for this tale is Southeast Kansas, called “the Little Balkans,” an area known for its coal mines and ethnic diversity. Author Max Yoho, a Kansan himself, has won numerous writing awards for his previous work, humorous fiction which includes The Revival; Tales from Comanche County; Felicia, These Fish Are Delicious; The Moon Butter Route and With the Wisdom of Owls.
