Check out this great story, titled Goat on a Cow, about a man named Erick Gordon who, quite by chance, found a giant pile of letters on the side of the road. The letters were written to a woman named Ella Chase. Erick explored the letters, used them to create a curriculum in his English classroom and then connected with a reporter named Laura Starecheski to share the story. Starecheski, intrigued, had to find out more. She began a hunt to find someone who knew the real Ella Chase and the story of the resulting pursuit is fascinating! Hope you find the time to listen to it.
Thanks to Annie at Curbside Treasure for pointing me to this little treasure!
