How will it be, this end of which you have spoken, Brother Enim?

Fennimore county’s river, the Mighty Muskrat, is usually well behaved. In our earliest days, fishing and hunting along its banks provided a welcome source of protein and variety for the frontier diet. Later its waters were a cool retreat during the summer doldrums and a pleasant recreation place much closer and more convenient than the lakes beyond Fahnstock. Even in winter its snakey course became a skating rink and race course for horse-drawn sleighs.

Then there are those maverick times when the Muskrat is downright unneighborly.

Howard has written about our kindly encounters with a gentle Muskrat. But as the spring thaw feeds its ego, I suspect he’ll have something to say about the downside of living by a river.
