Stories From The Mountain
These are stories, from Curtis M. Carlson, fantastic, ironic and often ponderous, and always entertaining. Some are very true, some are embellished and some are out and out fiction: I probably won't tell you one way or the other. The names may or may not have been changed to protect the innocent and to protect me from the guilty.
