More than a passing glance allowed

"The 1953 Chevrolet truck had been parked in the same place for many years in a yard just past Lower Grassy Branch beside Riceville Road. I had seen it countless times on my trips in and out of the valley. This trip I pulled into the yard and stepped out into snow flurries and a cold February wind. A closer examination of the truck revealed much more of its history than a passing glance allowed."

Dave Turner, author of the audio/ebook Billy Ray's Chevrolet And Other Writings And Photographs From A Southern Appalachian Valley


"Highly recommend "Billy Ray's Chevrolet," an ebook from college pal Dave Turner. It's a collection of writing and photographs "From a Southern Appalachian Valley." Dave's vivid childhood memories growing up near Asheville, his subtle insights and his gift for lyrical writing make for an enjoyable, if not all-too-brief read."
-Rodney Rogers, Greenville, SC

"I downloaded Dave's audio book and spent the last 50+ minutes in a wonderful solitude, filled with the prosaic excellence and imagery of a very talented and sensitive artist. I encourage you to participate in this experience."
-Bill McMillan, Naples, FL

"Dave, when I met you several years ago, I soon felt like I had known you forever. This is not too weird of a notion as we have mutual friends from our school days. I have loved your music from the first show I attended. Now your new e-book has opened up a new view of your writing for me. What a wonderful way to use technology to get your work out into the world. Your writing has a way of putting me right in the setting. Thank you for the bonus--your Could Have Talked All Night album. The music is a nice complement to the book. Amber River and of course, Billy Ray’s Chevrolet are favorites. Keep up the good work and don’t let the haters get you down. I look forward to seeing (and hearing) you soon."
-Ben Smith, Marshall, NC

"Dave, thanks so much for writing such a great comfortable book. I read it last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. What made it even better was the bonus music playing softly in the background. It was the perfect background sound for reading such great stories from you. I encourage everyone to download this just to partake in a couple hours of someone's art. Very well done. Thanks, Dave....what's next?"
