Michael Reno Harrell

Drawing on a lifetime of varied and colorful experiences and peopled with genuine characters from all walks of life, Michael carries his Southern Appalachian youth with him as he wanders deliberately across this country and many others. With the intrinsic authenticity of a genuine balladeer, Harrell weaves the threads of his observations and experiences into a cozy afghan of tales, highlighted with wicked wit and poignant reflections.
