Publisher Comments:

"I'm sure I never said to myself: 'Now, Jim--why don't you sit down and write a poem.' It's still a mystery to me, but I think probably it's something that happened by accident--like a lot of things have happened in my life."

So begins this delightful collection of poetry by America's best-loved actor, Jimmy Stewart. Interspersed with vivid recollections and charming illustrations, the poems document a life that isn't too different from yours or mine.

Jimmy Stewart won the hearts of generations of movie viewers with a confused innocence and stammering delivery that made his acting seem genuine and effortless. Somehow he managed to make the boy next door into a national hero. Now, in Jimmy Stewart and His Poems, the consummate Everyman shares tales from his everyday life.

From fishing trips and dog stories to a hilarious account of a photo safari where the camera was lost to a hungry hyena, the poems are related in Jimmy Stewart's inimitable voice and are enlivened with charming illustrations.
The book confirms what we all expected--that the real Jimmy Stewart is every bit as endearing as the film characters he's portrayed. Jimmy Stewart and His Poems is a perfect gift, one that fans will treasure as much as Jimmy Stewart's timeless performances.

About the Author

JIMMY STEWART 1908 - 1997

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, The Philadelphia Story, Rear Window — from Capra to Hitchcock, Jimmy Stewart won the hearts of movie audiences around the world as the most beloved actor to light up the silver screen.

Back in the fall of 1989, Mr. Stewart published his only book, the New York Times best-seller Jimmy Stewart and His Poems, accompanied by anecdotes of his cherished family as they traveled on a fishing trip to South America and a photographic safari in Kenya. Besides the indelible mark of the eighty movies Jimmy Stewart leaves behind, these delightful poems, written from his heart, are now part of his legacy and a testament to his truly charmed and wonderful life.
