  • I had the pleasure of teaching Clamdigging. It was a fun way to teach grammar and punctuation. I do free-lance writing in retirement and still use the principles of Clamdigging.
    Tom Couser (English Teacher)
  • I learned more about grammar from Clamdigging than I did in all my previous grades put together! Instead of inserting random commas in my writing, I now identify the clauses and phrases that require punctuation. I am proud of this skill and will never part with this book.
    Jenny Riecke (former Clamdigger)
  • The beauty of this book is that is instantly disarms the student’s fears and calms their anxieties through the use of humor. The playful tone makes the lessons approachable so that students let go of their prejudices toward grammar—and once their guards are down, they then begin to pay attention.
    Chris Capehart—(English teacher and former Clamdigger)
  • Do you like falling asleep while you’re trying to learn English?  I know I don’t.  With Mr. Lund’s Clamdigging book you will never get tired.  When you are reading the lesson, it feels like the teacher is right there talking to you.  Finally, I get English!  I love this book!
    Brandi Becker (former Clamdigger)
  • As a professional speaker and writer, people ask how I became a good story teller, a writer of cutting-edge sales copy, and a creator of quality promotional material. I tell them that it wasn't college or business school. It all happened when I was "digging for clams" with Mr. Lund nearly 20 years ago!
    Ben Littlefield (former Clamdigger)
