A volume of short stories by beloved mountain storyteller Jane Wodening, author of Lump Gulch Tales and Living Up There. 12 new, previously unpublished stories, plus 45 previously published, including several from Lump Gulch Tales, now out of print. Stories of nature, mountain living, growing up and growing old.
“I’ve made it a point of reading at least one (but usually two) of the stories in Jane’s book every day, picking them out randomly as I go along, and have been enjoying them immensely. I envy the ease with which she tells her stories; she has a fluid style, there’s not a false note in the batch.”
Ray Grasse, author of The Waking Dream, and Signs of the Times
“More than the story, what stays with me is the sensitivity that Jane brings to her surroundings and individual beings in them. Just being with them, looking, listening so carefully that she goes deeply into them, then she perceives that they are speaking to her — and she tells us what they say.”
