They say places like Dry Creek no longer exist. In Stories from the Creekbank, you'll travel to a delightful place where good people and wonderful experiences can still be found.

As you sit along the creek bank to read these heartwarming stories, you'll both laugh and cry as you travel down the creeks, roads, and into the hearts and lives of the people who make up this special community called Dry Creek, Louisiana.

Whether it's a country preacher ruining his prize white suit, helping corral horses on a muddy road in "Bro. Hodges' Best Sermon," a homesick seven-year-old summer camper in "Seth's Big Camp Day," or the heart-rending sadness of losing a special teenager in "A Bright Light," you'll be both touched and encouraged by these inspiring stories.

All through these fifty short stories, a common thread is woven: God is so good and He is active all around us in nature, the people we see each day, and the simple daily events of our lives.

In this second edition, you'll enjoy each of the original forty-eight stories plus two previously unpublished bonus stories. Come join thousands of other readers who have been warmed and touched by these reminders of the priceless things in our lives. Come be reminded as to how "the things that really matter aren't things," but matters of the heart, soul, our faith, families, and friends.
