Bert and I ... The Book

Bert and I ... The Book features more than sixty classic stories from the legendary storytellers Marshall Dodge and Robert Bryan, the godfathers of Down East humor, who together created the now-iconic "Bert and I" stories starting in the 1950s.


The characters everyone loves and remembers are all here: Bert and his fellow fisherman known only as "I", Gagnon, World Champion Moose Caller, Virgil Bliss, the dirtiest man in Hancock County, Arnold Bunker, Kenneth Fowler, Camden Pierce, Harry Whitfield, and many more. The stories in this book are drawn from five "Bert and I" albums recorded over nearly two decades, including the seminal Bert and I ... And Other Stories from Down East, perhaps the most important comedy album in New England history. Bert and I ... The Book also includes the first complete "Bert and I" discography, including original album art and liner notes, as well as an introduction by Rebecca Rule, a New Hampshire author and storyteller (Live Free and Eat Pie!Headin' for the Rhubarb!) who writes and performs stories in the grand tradition of "Bert and I."
