Novels aren’t the only place where written treasures are hidden in the narrative. Some are revealed in the chapters of a novella or the paragraphs of a short story. My walking buddies and I decided to make a range of written material available to other hikers who frequent the Buffalo Creek Preserve and Trail in Cabarrus County North Carolina. The hiking trail is a segment of the Carolina Tread Trail.
We dedicated a Little Free Library at the trail head and committed to supplying a short story each month to a local paper, the Senior Savvy. The stories appear in a column - Trail Tales. A flip version of the paper is available online. PDF versions of the stories can be acquired by way of this blog. Simply submit the form to receive a free copy of the story featured this month. The story this month is titled "Lessons from an Old Truck", written by Craig Scott.
It was first published in the Clergy Corner of the October 14, 2014 issue of the Concord Standard & Mount Pleasant Times in a section on Community of Faith. At the time Craig was pastor of East Cabarrus Church.
