Description


Twelve Grindstones continues the laughter and wisdom, the leg-pulling and the literate chuckling of John Gould. Starting down the road to hilarity, there are some old stories and some new stories, all of them great stories from the canon of Maine folklore. Within are some long and some tall tales about blueberry picking, railroading, wood buying, lobster wars, and bootlegging. So sit down and put your feet up and prepare for some of the most amusing, preposterous, and heartwarming tales you've likely heard in a very long time. You're in for a treat.

About the Author


Born and bred in Maine, John Gould (1908-2003) was well known for his acerbic Yankee wit. Over his life he wrote dozens of books and for an astounding sixty-two years was a regular columnist for the Christian Science Monitor. Despite his literary fame, he would always claim that he was, first, last, and always, a farmer.
