“Short Stories: From a Long Life”: a colorful book of true events. “Short Stories: From a Long Life” is the creation of published author Pat Harris, a happily married great-grandfather born in Dallas, Texas.

Harris writes, “Short Stories: From a Long Life tells of stories of enlightenment and stories of the darkness of this world—from a three-year-old boy to a twenty-year-old man: Stories that are funny—some are adventurous, some are exciting, some describe intelligence, some describe stupidity, some are about individual people, some are about happenings, and some are about evil and scary things. Some of these stories are a guide to good principles and good conduct, while others walk close to the edge of darkness, along and beside evil behavior and evil deeds
This author opens up and tells things that most people would not divulge. A fast and busy life. A mind that is always on the lookout for knowledge and understanding. Real happenings and real people involved in the survival and the progress of this life.
Stories of children, teenagers, and adults, some ignorant and some intelligent—both good and evil, likable and ugh!
I tell of many of the weird things that people do for various reasons.
If you have an analytical mind, you will understand some of the things that I noted—things that I saw firsthand, things that I recorded, and things that I became a part of. I hope that you enjoy the book.
The stories in this book started in 1939 and ended in 1957, right after Helen and I were married. These stories should be very fascinating to the younger generations, especially if they have an exploring nature and an inquisitive mind. There are many things described in these stories that they have probably never even heard of or seen!”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Pat Harris’s new book is an engaging tapestry woven from adventure, excitement, humor, and the supporting details of everyday life.
