Bogue Chitto Flats is the frst book published by author John Case. In this collection of vibrant and heart-
warming short stories, John invites the reader into his tales of the people he knew and the stories he
heard while growing up in his hometown in rural Mississippi, where storytelling was an art and most
likely the main source of entertainment. These stories were formed as far back as grammar school and
began to prompt John's literary interest as early as his college days.
John was raised in the small crossroads village of Bogue Chitto, Mississippi, but attended school in the
larger town of Brookhaven. His life experiences are both rural and urban.
Most of these stories have been published in Slidell Magazine where he writes a monthly piece under
the moniker “The Storyteller”. The real things John saw in his youth in black and white, he now shares
with us in Technicolor.
John's talent is in creatng and telling a story, using rich characters and scenes that fill the reader's mind
with images of days gone by and life as it was in rural America. John hopes that, as you read these stories,
you will get a glimpse of something or someone you once knew, and his tales leave you with a positive feeling
about the way we are. (Paperback)
