Sixteen Stories by John Howard Ladd :Compiled by Byron Mettler
John Howard Ladd
Experience a better time - back in the days when "making love" meant holding hands and whispering sweet nothings; and living in the same neighborhood as wolves, bears and wild forest animals was the norm. Watch the jealous boyfriend struggle for the affection of his love. Hear the grunts and rantings of the wild bear challenging the lone woman in a rural prairie home. Feel the strained anxiety of an innocent man charged with a crime he did not commit.
John Howard Ladd lost his sight at middle age, but continued on to create stories of love, death, disgrace and restoration. This unique series of stories were written for those of us who may never have experienced life without automobiles or entertainment without television.
Today, through the mind's eye of John Howard Ladd you can experience life as it really was during the pre-tech era of the United States.
Read, enjoy, experience; an old way of life.
