Shoebox Funeral : Stories from Wolf Creek (Hardcover) (Elisabeth Voltz)
about this item
Growing up with ten siblings on a farm in rural Grove City, PA, Beth Voltz came in contact with many animals, as one would expect when you live on a farm. But the Voltz family farm would usually have a few additions each week—the townspeople would often drop off their unwanted, or worse, dying animals for the Voltz family to take care of. Grave Tales: Stories from Wolf Creek is a heartfelt collection of short stories about the ducks, cats, dogs, and birds that Beth would befriend, all the while knowing that they wouldn't be around for very long.
Elisabeth Voltz was born on a farm in Grove City PA, the tenth child to a horticulturalist and a mathematician/exorcist. There she collected unlucky and even suicidal animals, accumulating tragic death stories until she moved to Pittsburgh twelve years ago to become a video editor at Animal Inc.
