  • "I like your writing {on Yesterday Again}.  You tell a good story....  I think you will go far with your dream.  I hope D.O.C. does well."                                                                                  Jory Sherman, Pulitzer Prize nominated author and winner of a 1991 Spur Award 
  • "They say you 'can't go home again.'  But as an Ozarker, do you ever feel you want to go home again, if even for a little while?  Today, I actually went.  As I started reading Yesterday Again, author Steve Whisnant made me see places that were only distant memories....  If you are a true Ozarker and you miss these sights and sounds as much as I do, pick up the book and you will be transported....  The writer knows his Ozarks."                                                               Diana Flanary-Bray, Book Review for The Ozark Mountaineer
  • "I was so involved with the characters in {his} book that I didn’t hear the phone ringing…and I was on duty at the bookstore!  It has been a long time since a book has kept my interest to this level!"            Doris McDaniel, Vintage Books
  • "If I were a betting man, I would bet Steve Whisnant will not only become a recognized author, but attain some prominence...It’s just possible this book may someday be a collector’s item."                   Jim Bell, retired President, Publishers Bookshop, Inc.
  • "It was a great read."                                                          James White, Harrison's Daily Times
  • "...I was surprised at the depth of understanding and feeling with which {he} handled {his} characters....  The way {he} showed motivation for every action (seemlessly) along with each character's emotions marks {him} as a writer with great possibilities."          Marcia Camp, two time winner of the Sybil Nash Abrams Poetry Award and nominated for the prestigious Pushcart Prize
  • "I have enjoyed every story; you (Steve) write well and are so talented. Congratulations on your book. It is a great read."          Linda Fisher, Membership Chair, Columbia Chapter of the Missouri Writers' Guild
  • "...Your descriptions of the state, the portraits you so clearly paint with your words, brings me home every time I pick up your book....  I think you are a fantastic writer.  I am hooked, and look forward to your next book."                                                                       Jill Ann Church, Award Winning Writer
  • "...I LOVED your book.  You write what you know and do it so very well.  Your characters are alive with poignant feelings.  I was particularly impressed with the story about the man who stopped into a small AR cafe and appreciated the values expressed by the denizens while their behaviors expressed a cruelty to those not within their circle.  Good job."                                                               Sharon Leinbach, State Registrar, Tennessee Vital Records
