Book Size: 5.5'' x 8.5'' , 160 pages

What happens when wry-witted farmer-reporter Roger Rural encounters well-intentioned faeries may be a mystery to him, but Epona’s poetry and weirdful Deirdre play along with the whimsical possibilities.

Abstract:
Fondis: The call of the goose, the sparkle of the faerie dance, the simmering cauldron, muddy boots, endless chores, truculent children, any or all might guide you to downtown Fondis. Or you just might let Epona Maris, Deirdre H. Moon and Roger Rural unveil a few moments of Fondis life. Humorous, witty, thought-provoking and whimsical, The Fondis Chronicles will create a transcendent reality, stirring gentle memories like the imprint of an autumn leaf, to be savored again and again.

Customer Reviews

  Tinker Bell in Lake Wobegon? , 02/15/2006
Reviewer: Carolyn Overbay
Picture Tinker Bell visiting Lake Wobegon, and you will have an inkling of THE FONDIS CHRONICLES. Three High Plains columnists from Colorado -- Roger Rural, Epona Maris, and Deirdre H. Moon -- combine whimsy and pragmatism in depicting the joys and challenges of living in Fondis, Colorado, with its eclectic and eccentric population. For readers who like open minds and homespun philosophies, the kind found in Walt Whitman and Will Rogers, THE FONDIS CHRONICLES is a delight. Its writers' infinite interests include creative etymology, Celtic mysticism, poetry and poultry. This ethereal and offbeat collection is a great buy!

  Trucking through Fondis , 06/19/2006
Reviewer: Susan Fox
Reading The Fondis Chronicles reminded me of driving on back roads in a friends four-wheel drive pickup. During that time, the college student years, adventure was standard entertainment. Reading Roger Rural was like flying down a hill. His subtle pathos gave momentum for barreling up the slope of Epona’s search for meaning in the natural world. Deidra Moon’s pithy narratives were reminiscent of the bumps and jolts the trunk bounced through, to my delight. This well framed novel reminded me that meaning and synergy are still out there; waiting to be savored. Reader beware: You may hear the braying of a donkey, or feel the flapping of goose wings, all part of the experience.
