Trunks Like Black Bones (Marlow, 1825)

Grandpa remembers “what happened to all the forests” in the Keene area…

Discussion Questions: 

  • This story came from Elgin Jones’ History of Marlow, NH. His grandfather told him about seeing this forestry done in Marlow in 1825, while the grandfather was still a boy. How is this kind of forestry different from our current systems of forestry? (See also: The Weeks Act Story…)
  • What kinds of stories will you tell, when you are older and your grandchildren are as old as you are now? What kinds of things do we do today that might amaze children of the future? Why?
