"A rich and fascinating portrait of Washington life… [Strickland's] quiet introduction weaves the narratives together in a powerful harmony of memory, reflection, and wisdom."

--The Seattle Times

"Memory, experience, and the narrative urge are the raw materials which novelists, poets, entertainers, and balladeers carve and burnish into rich gems of invention. I believe that at its best nothing can surpass the warmth and drama of a single voice speaking directly to us of the things which matter… Our impersonal age cries out for this balm, the healing touch of words, the storyteller's art."
