The unthinkable, but true chronicles of a rookie teacher and his impulsive, unpredictable herd of 9th grade boys - affectionally known as the "Hogs". This collection of hilarious, sidesplitting (too wild to imagine) tales from the 70's classroom will keep you snorting with laughter and fill your heart with "Hog Wisdom".
In the stressed-out, too-serious world in which we work and live, "The Hog Farm Chronicles" is a refreshing escape and a must read for educators, counselors, youth leaders, kids, and parents.
