Train Tracks : Holiday Stories
Millions of listeners admire Michael Savage for his devotion to traditional family values, and they love the personal stories he shares with them on his wildly popular radio show. That's what this book is about, Savage writes in the preface, It's about tradition. It's about families. It's about being together through thick and through thin, with all of the anger, the hostility, the confusion. That's what life is. And so therefore that's what this book is. Savage calls his collection "Train Tracks", because each story is like a set of tracks that runs through the course of his life, from his childhood to the present. As he takes readers on this very special personal journey, Savage remind them of the priceless moments with those nearest and dearest in their own lives. The stories in "Train Tracks" are connected by their humanity and pathos, values that are more essential than ever in these turbulent times. Savage says, I hope that you enjoy reading them and reading them to your children and to your children's children.

"A marvelous storyteller." -- The New Yorker "Vivid storytelling. ... Michael Savage is one of the most influential conservative voices in America." -- BRETT M. DECKER, Washington Times "Savage recalls his childhood growing up in the Bronx. ... He's got the knack for evocative detail, and this series of short vignettes features some indelible images, such as the immigrant father who, insisting that nothing be wasted, forced his son to wear dead men's trousers." -- Washington Post
