Excerpts from Pathway Books
Here are some excerpts from one of the children’s fiction books published by Pathway Publishing, entitled Life Is Not Fair :
“Herman, I’d like for you to drive into town on your way to Uncle Dan’s,” announced Dad Kauffman one February morning. “There is a package of harness straps at the express office that I ordered, and I need them first thing tomorrow.”
Dad Kauffman ran a small harness shop instead of farming. Herman occasionally helped a day or so in the shop, but there was really not enough work and barely room for two to work at one time. As the only son, Herman was expected to someday take over the shop, but he had a greater interest in farming than he did in harness fixing. So Dad Kauffman thought it would be good for him to get some first-hand experience helping farmers while he was still young.
“Your Uncle Dan stopped in last night,” Dad went on. “He won’t be looking for you until mid-forenoon. So you should have time to go to town and be back at his place by then.”
