Campfire Verses: 25 Tales to Share Around the Campfire

Campfire Verses is a collection 25 of previously unpublished stories in verse form. They are all campfire-worthy, and they are also suitable to use in lessons, talks, and anything else where tales with a moral would be useful. These tales are the result of the author’s lifetime of service to young people, which required the preparation of countless presentations on a variety of topics. As all of the traditional scary stories and tall tales wore thin from overuse, the author yearned for the uniqueness and attention-riveting power of fresh new tales, so he began to write his own. Some of the lessons that can be learned around the campfire are found in poems such as: The Method: Don’t take shortcuts to success; The Eagle and the Chicken: You will become like the people you associate with; You’re on Commit: Be committed to your path; The Keeper of the Train: Trust in God; and The Two Wolves Within: No man can serve two masters. These tales, with their rich flavor, are sure to captivate people of all ages.
