Little House

I came by this book from Enid's collection. We have our own copy of all the books, but this one is special.  It came from my elementary school library and is likely the very copy my first grade teacher read to me.  She was the last of a generation, I think, and had attended a one-room school herself.  She brought her slate to show us and made stone soup with us.  She was strict, to be sure, but gave us many good memories.  It was clear that she loved teaching.

This book is beautiful. How I wish all books were still sturdily bound hard-backs.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
