[Excerpt from Foreword by Tom Avery] About Cully Gage's book...It's beautiful: a sensitive, warm, realistic look at and into the lives of those dosest to him at the turn of the century. He's captured the geographic, economic, sociological, psychological forces which shaped the lives of his characters-his life--those elements which make people who and what they are. His writing is alive! His characters don't need their actions or existence justified with paragraphs of explanation. They are simply products of the land and the times. They are part of both and were beautifully simple, real, natural people. They are the the kind of characters which are most difficult to portray, but CuUy Gage had and he has them down on paper! The significance then, of Cully Gageââ‚¬â„¢s Northwoods Reader-It portrays people-real people, They live, walk these pages, speak and act as real people speak and act. There is no pretense, no pumped-up morality, no fairy tale ending. Characters simply and believable play out their roles; their livers ââ‚¬" they grow up, grow old, die, vanish, go tack to the farm or the cabin in the woods or just board the evening train and leave. You can laugh at and with them, cry for and with them. You will see yourself or those close to you in every paragraph of every page of every story. "The Reader" is for and about everyone. You can't possibly be old enough to read without finding yourself in here somewhere. Times, places and faces change. People don't. Their loves, fears, ambitions, desires and loyalties don't. Whether Cully Gage thought about these things as he wrote or captured this feeling of intimacy by" accident, I have no way of knowing That's unimportant. He "captured" people! ââ‚¬¦ Here is a great piece of writing. Youââ‚¬â„¢ll enjoy it.
