a hundred times longer to burn out.
There was no kind of turpentine that
could penetrate down into them to
make it easier. It took time, ani
there was no way to tell whether they
were all out or not. It was better

There’s a prime parable for you.
I wish I had time to quote from Page
313 a description of the fir foreat
and an old burn coming out of winter.
The entire novel goes deep into the
Columbia River Country and all its
figures of earth. The story gets a
grip on you right off the bat that
keeps you reading hard, and reading

not losing track on a solitary item.
Probably I’d not be so reckless in
cheering for “Winds of the Morning"

Oscar Lewis hadn't cut loose first
wtih lavish praise for it. Don’t miss
this ramrod of all the western stories.
