Bowing low, he gave a last confident nod toward home plate, the kind that said, 'You know kid, I'm Danny Dragoon. I pitch fire, and you can't hit fire. No one can.'
A scrawny fourth grader goes to bat against Danny Dragoon, the best pitcher in all of Bluster County. No one expects him to get a hit, but by accident, he does. Suddenly, the attention is on him, not Danny. A tale of sportsmanship.
This is a mostly true story. Really. I played on the Crestwood, IL Twins. Mostly, I played outfield, and occasionally took over at second or third base. I even pitched once or twice. My arm, despite my small stature, threw a mean fastball. My trouble was that I was nowhere near the plate. I was terrible, but I had a great time.

Bluster County, USA. That's anywhere the biggest fish never get away, yet somehow aren't as expected. The mountains are built from elephants, champion coin droppers are around every corner, and the spring wind blows harder than a tornado but never leaves a mark. It is where I live, and it might be where you live too.
These are the days in Bluster County which cause me to smile, and I would live nowhere else. The sun rises an inch higher here than anywhere else in the world, making every day brighter.
Imagine a world in which everything goes completely right, and completely wrong all at once. This is the story of an extraordinary everyman's life, but filled with color, excitement, and plenty of bluster.
In Bluster County, you will hear old men tell old American Tall-Tales -- except these are completely true, more or less. Filled with half-truths, bald-faced lies, and the occasional fact, expect not to learn much of anything that's important.
