TRR: Episode 50, “Lost Pond”



Many states have a legend of a so-called “lost pond,” a place found by the early pioneers and woodsmen, but never marked properly on a map. All that remained were the stories told by the old-timers, the location itself lost to the wilderness. In this episode, we follow a pair of anglers in search of one such lost pond.

TRR: Episode 32, “Keeping Tryst”



We submit for your approval a story set in the fair days of King Arthur and the Age of Chivalry. Our selection this week is a story from children’s author Annie Fellows Johnston, in which a young page sets out to earn his knighthood. As usual with stories for children from the early 20th Century, this one is built around a strong moral lesson.
