Tony Norris, Arizona Musician and Storyteller

In "A Letter from Home," Tony Norris brings the wildness of the old west into our tame and pallid lives. With a voice as velvety as a new colt's nose, he sings and story tells his way across a forgotten landscape, bringing a fresh breath of sage swept wind into our work-a-day worlds and daily commutes.

— Mimi Altree, author, the Cowboy Way, Longstreet Press. 2002
