of Frogs and Friends

A Collection by John H. Perkins

of Frogs and Friends is a collection of short stories and essays by John H. Perkins of Clear Lake, Iowa. Many of these essays were originally published in the Mason City [Iowa] Globe Gazette.

Mr. Perkins' unique style and insight covers everything from current events to a tour of an Iowa that once was. Whether it is Washington politics or riding the Flexible Flyer down MacGowan hill, you will find it here, written from the viewpoint of a native North Iowan.

In the words of Mr. Perkins:
  "My readers have indicated they have clipped some of my columns for a scrap book, have sent them to relatives around the country and have mailed them overseas. Certainly those kind expressions stroke my ego. I would be less than truthful if I didn't admit that. But, believe me when at the same time I say, it makes me very humble. I am grateful if I can generate a ray of sunshine in someone's otherwise foggy day. May this collection bring you joy."
