My life has been interesting and magical, but it is beyond my current abilities to put many words down about it. How did I miss this book in my youth? And this one is magical. I posted about this book last time I Know, No Posts. And it arrived a few days later—thank you, Amazon. For the last few evenings I have been sitting by my pond and reading this book. And laughing out loud. And being amazed.
So many things seem to be coming together. The passages about the Sierras take me back to the summers I lived in those mountains—one year alone by Burgson Lake, one year working at Kennedy Meadows pack station. And all the many horseback pack trips over the mountain passes that came later. When Japhy and Ray go into the Sierras out of Bridgeport, Bridgeport comes back to me as vividly as if I were there yesterday. And there are so many lines in the book that are things that Andy used to say to me.
It all feels so connected.
