SKYO by Martha Hardy


Email this review


The ""schoolmarm's"" search for home roots and the result. Abandoning the little cottage in the Washington Cascades, she is urged and pushed into buying a place, after hurriedly raising the money. Through weekends and a summer, she learns to know the unpredictable torments of her mountain neighbor. She tells of becoming a part of the community, of the friendliness of people, of the bane of tourists and picnickers, of acquiring a dog, of alarums and excursions, of logging and forest fires. There's an important decision about a new job- and guidance from Skyo. A fond and faithful record of regional life.
