Inhaltsangabe: Twenty years ago, cub re-porter David Johnson had an idea for a column: he'd pick a name at random from the telephone book and write a story on the person who answered his call. Visiting journalist Charles Kuralt overheard his plan and proclaimed it the best idea he'd ever heard-and the popular column "Everybody Has a Story" was born. Today, over 800 Americans have shared their personal stories in the pages of the Lewiston Morning Tribune, and for David Johnson, the trip of two decades has taught him lessons he never imagined. In this book, you'll meet many of the people whose perspectives changed David's life. Not only have they reminded him of life's "universal ingredients," the hopes and dreams we all share, but they've commented, each in their idiosyncratic way, on what is truly important.

From Library Journal: This very personal book traces the story of a quirky newspaper column and the man who initiated it. Some 20 years ago, cub reporter Johnson came up with the idea of using his telephone book to make random calls to individuals across the country and interview them for his weekly newspaper column "Everyone Has a Story." Since then, over 800 people have shared their personal stories with the readers of the Lewistown Morning Tribune in Idaho. In each chapter, Johnson reflects on his own experiences to provide the frame and then draws on others' stories to illustrate what he considers the important elements of life. For example, the chapter on love opens with his own wedding night and then segues into the story of newlyweds Everett Walker, age 75, and his bride, Vivien, age 90. Their never-ending honeymoon centers on trips in their tent trailer, which provides an excellent lead-in for Johnson's humorous recounting of his own camping-trip honeymoon, during which he and his new wife left the tent behind to enjoy sleeping under the stars but found themselves huddled under a poncho in never-ending rain. Other "universal ingredients" of life that Johnson focuses on include family relations, rural lifestyles, work, religion, and daily life. The result is a tribute to the column and the surprisingly profound impact it has had on its creator and his perception of America. For public libraries.
