Pamela Schumacher: "Author, David Nelson is a rare and unique storyteller. Your emotional response is quickly captured via tears, laughter, anger, indignation, and horror, on and on. As a Dubuquer, I relate to many situations. But location doesn’t matter: emotions, friendships, growing up, are universal. David’s words paint realistic pictures; your response is automatic! A must read!!"
Becca Habegger: "Laced with nostalgia and social commentary, David Nelson’s If the Hills Could Talk will delight readers with a Midwesterner’s take on living in the South and growing up in mid-1900s Dubuque, Iowa. As a journalist who has worked in Dubuque, Iowa and East Tennessee, I thoroughly enjoyed Nelson’s candid tales."
Deb Strub: "The stories involving Catholic calisthenics, stalking for night crawlers, or a risqué day with Mort were fantastic. Author David Nelson guides you to Laughter, Life, Love and Tears. Take a trek to the Good Old Days in his volume of short stories. This is a “must-read” for all ages."
Bob Eisbach: "I can't remember the last time I went through so many emotions in such a short period of time reading, "If The Hills Could Talk." The memories that Dave's stories rekindled about our coming of age are remarkable."
