Mischief and Misfits, The Blandford Chronicles

149 pages1 hour


What makes an American hill town different than the cosmopolitan city? Some may believe not a thing, but country life takes on a spirit all its own. Old families still live in these protected surroundings of wood and lake, and no matter how many new fangled gadgets come into town, the way the things work in the hills, are never changed. Blandford Town, found in the Western Massachusetts Berkshire Mountains, is no different in perspective as a hamlet in Kentucky or Iowa. Traditions and families make the lore of their existence and the dead talk through the silence of the living. "Mischief and Misfits" takes the reader through some of the colorful history of Blandford with a little twisting of the truth. You meet pioneers, mountain goobers, and a delightful fools who get through life on the cheap, while the good folk work out their profitability and civic duties faithfully, but sometimes in disjointed measure. You will have a great adventure and much fun reading about the impossible becoming reality - in the odd and romantic Massachusetts town of Blandford.
