"If the whole country [where I live] were covered
with fresh snow and all the tracks of my wanderings over it were
imprinted there, almost every section of land in any of the thirteen

footsteps would be so numerous as to pack the snow solid. The eight
hundred-some miles of roadways in the county I had also traveled
many times. Along every trail and every road were places where little
events important to me had happened-trysting places, tiny adventures
that shaped or influenced my life in some small or large way. This
was home, and it was so vast and deep and high and wide that I could
never tire of it."

days, a contrary mind of a high order."
