(From the publisher):
"I'm sure I never said to myself: 'Now, Jim—why don't you sit down and write a poem.' It's still a mystery to me, but I think probably it's something that happened by accident—like a lot of things have happened in my life."
So begins this delightful collection of poetry by America's best-loved actor, Jimmy Stewart. Interspersed with vivid recollections and charming illustrations, the poems document a life that isn't too different from yours and mine.
Jimmy Stewart won the hearts of generations of movie viewers with a confused innocence and stammering delivery that made his acting seem genuine and effortless. Somehow he mananged to make the boy next door into a national here. Now in Jimmy Stewart and His Poems, the consummate Everyman shares tales from his everyday life.
From fishing trips and dog stories to a hilarious account of a photo safari where the camera was lost to a hungry hyena, the poems are related in Jimmy Stewart's inimitable voice and are enlivened with charming illustrations.
