Read Front Porch Tales – These laugh-out-loud stories from New Hampshire and Vermont are set during the four seasons of the year. Included are: “Mothah Skunk” and the night she had to move out with her kits because Sherman Curtis smelled so bad; the escapades of Big Gertie Benson, the lumberjack’s cook and a cousin of the Bunyans in the Midwest; and George Petty, who delivered the mail even during mud season by standing on the back of his horse with only his head sticking out.
