Quotes from This Book

  • “We jumped from rock to rock to rock, Across the river to where the woods began, Where bunchberry grew under the pine-needle path and trillium bloomed. Under the beech trees was a soft, rounded bed where a deer had slept. The bed was warm when I touched it.”
  • “The birds surrounded us: raucous black grackles, redwings, crows in the dirt that swaggered like pirates. When we left, Papa put a handful of dirt in his pocket.”
