Corey Jenkins has crafted a set of stories that will have you crying, laughing and begging for more. Told with folksy humor & down home charm, "Lines, Tines & Southern Pines" is a treat for all who enjoy the outdoors with friends & family. Its written by a fun-loving prankster, a real man, with wit & style. it will delight readers to the last word. Henry David Thoreau wrote that a lot of men fish all their lives without ever realizing that fish isn't really what they're after. That, in one sentence encapsulates the theme of Lines, Tines & Southern Pines. The author skillfully articulates what is truly derived from growing up in the outdoors and the mysteries in the woods and beckoning waters of lakes, streams and ponds. He entertains and moves us artfully in crafting the companionship and closeness of a Grandfather, Dad, Mom, family, friends and provides insights about the true essence of nature and the powerful yet peaceful effect it can infuse within those receptive to its charms. I remember reading the story of a commercial airline pilot whose copilot asked him why, on one of their regular routes, he always looked down and sighed at the same place on a tiny river each time they passed over it. He replied that when he was a small boy he would be sitting down there on a log, fishing, when planes would fly over, and he would wish with all his heart that he were up there flying the plane. But now that he was grown and flying, all he wished for with all his heart was that he could be that small boy again, back down on that log fishing. For anyone who loves the outdoors and craves to go back and be that small boy or girl again, reliving the joy and innocence of a blessed childhood well lived in the outdoors with loved ones now gone, Corey has stories that will take you back in your mind to those times in your life, and bring smiles to your face, and maybe tears to your eyes.

"Corey Jenkins has crafted a set of stories that will have you crying, laughing and begging for more. Told with folksy humor and down home charm, Lines, Tines & Southern Pines belongs on every person's bookshelf that enjoys experiencing the outdoors with friends and family."
***Robert Bailey, Author of "The Professor" and "Between Black and White" ***
********************************************************************************************************************************
"This is the top book in this genre I've read in years. I chuckled out loud, and even wiped a tear during some touching scenes. The crazy tales are mindful of Huckleberry Finn on steroids. Corey's style is transparent, fluid, comical, and genuine. He is the kind of guy I'd like to meet. His book is absolutely a delight for all ages, male and female. There are some rather intriguing fishing and hunting episodes, but the true emphasis is on relationships, fun, and insights about lessons learned in the outdoors."
***Rocky McElveen, Master Guide/Owner, Alaskan Adventures and Author of the top selling "Wild Men, Wild Alaska" books ***
********************************************************************************************************************************
"Jenkins' tales are heartfelt & comical. He is the perfect blend of Bill Heavy and John Gierach. 'Lines, Tines & Southern Pines' is a must read for the serious outdoorsman."
***Drew Senter, Oxford, Alabama, Founder: Longleaf Photography***

"When my brother said, 'Sis, you gotta read this book.' I retorted that I didn't like fishing and hunting books that showcased men's prowess or boring techniques. He laughed and said I was in for a real treat. Oh My Goodness! I loved it. It was not about harvesting fish or animals, but written from a kind heart, a fun-loving prankster, and a real man who involves his wife, daughters, friends, and now his readers in such interesting stories. Corey is not afraid to be transparent, or display his foibles and his wit will catch you off guard. As others have noted, I too cried and immensely enjoyed his humor. As I read, I was right there with him, visualizing the scenes, seeing the beauty of nature, and reveling in the craziness. Ladies, buy this for yourselves, then give it to your hubby!" ***Ginger Hammons, Kingston, Tennessee***
********************************************************************************************************************************
"This book sparks so much emotion. I don't know if I laughed more, or cried more, but I did a good bit of both. I was thoroughly entertained by each and every story, and once I picked it up I didn't put it down until I finished. It is appropriate for (almost) all ages and has some good lessons on family, friendship, life and how to respect life. This collection of short stories will make anyone from Alabama ...
