My Favorite Stories on HubPages -Dahoglund
This is reviewing my favorite stories on HubPages. I love to read and the writers that I showcase have written several stories that are very good reading. They are interesting, researched and believable. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
Dahoglund writes a wide variety of hubs. He writes short stories, history, reviews, and children's stories. He has been on HubPages for three years and has over 200 hubs. He has written several short stories that read as short stories but they are about the same people. Each of them is complete as a story all by itself. I love to read them. They bring thoughts of times gone by as they are all written about the past.
He writes children's stories for the age group of about 5-12. They are innocent tales of children living in the country and the adventures they get into. The dogs figure largely into these stories because he told them to his children, using the dogs they had at the time in the stories. They are heartwarming and sweet. The children and dogs do things together and learn about life. The feel of these is in the 50's. Some of the links for these are:
Another story that he has written is 'The Story of Marie', a 19th century immigrant from Sweden. These are loosely based on an ancestor of his. They are linked together for easier reading. The first of these stories is at:
The Carbon's Creek short stories are very interesting and sometimes quite amusing. He calls them 'Short Western' or 'Frontier' stories. This series is about a woman newspaper publisher in a small town named Carbon's Creek in Minnesota. She is a feisty woman who rides around in a buggy with her dog on the seat next to her and her shotgun and rifle under the seat. She fights against sexist stereotyping, crooked politicians, and lawbreakers. The people in the town are varied, developed characters and some of the things that they do get them in trouble but it always gets straightened out in the end. These are some interesting times and definitely interesting people. Some of these stories are quite funny and had me giggling.
There is a deaf and mute boy with his deaf Dalmatian dog that herds horses and helps the main character, Sarah, in her newspaper office. There is a saloon owner that was in the Civil War that has a rep as a gunfighter, which was an accident. A doctor who was a Civil War veteran who helped in the hospitals there and a Sheriff who is always trying to keep the woman newspaper publisher out of trouble. Read all their stories and you will love the characters.
Don writes about the Galvanized Yankee's in his 'Galvanized Yankee stories. They are about galvanized yankees, what they are, and what they did. He has put a little history in with his fiction and educates while entertaining. Very interesting stories.
He writes a short story series about Andrea. She is a Swedish immigrant to the Minnesota area and is a very strong minded young woman. He does strong minded women well. They do not put up with anything and will tell you if they think you are wrong. She gets into a few adventures that she has to think to get out of. She uses her high moral standards to keep her life straight. It is refreshing to read about people with high moral standards. She and her friends go to dances, work to build churches and other activities that give you a look at what life in the frontier might have been like. She and her friends are fast thinking and heroic. They work and think to make everything turn out right. They are very enjoyable stories.
He is now writing about a Deputy Sheriff that marries a woman who is against him using guns to make a living. He quits being a Deputy and they move to Lawrence, Kansas and are abolitionists. They have run ins with Quantrill's raiders. Their adventures are quite exciting and give us a good taste of what it was like at the time.
He writes about a ghost town and time travel with these stories. The town was first introduced to us in the Carbon's Creek stories.
Dahoglund has written many other stories as well. They are not series and you will enjoy them all. They all have a historical edge to them, which gives you insight about how the people lived back then. I hope you enjoy these stories.
