Laurie recounts the stories of Hardscrabble, her arrival as a young bride, her involvement in town life and the town's unique place in the world and their love of the outdoors and nature. The tone is down home friendly, conversational and intimate.
This is a book of dog stories and so much more. Laurie takes you into her world much the same way James Herriot took readers to his beloved Yorkshire.
Hardscrabble is small town New England at it's best. The Hardscrabble Chronicles is an old fashioned book in the best sense--it's warm, funny and nostalgic.
Laurie picks up the tales of Hardscrabble where the renowned outdoor writer, Corey Ford left off. For thirty years, from 1923 until 1953, legendary Field & Stream columnist Corey Ford owned the Lower Forty in a small New England town that he dubbed "Hardscrabble" to shield its identity. He regaled millions of readers with colorful stories of its eccentric and eclectic townsfolk. Now, with The Hardscrabble Chronicles, Laurie Bogart Morrow continues this rich tradition-and interweaves portraits of one of Hardscrabble's most valuable resources: its dogs.
