‘It’s funny about imagination, how it can add to your peril even while it momentarily comes to your rescue.’ ~ Ivan Doig, Last Bus to Wisdom⠀
Anyone with an active imagination probably read the above book excerpt and dealt with cockles and bumply goosebumps. (mischievous grin) ⠀
Oh how I am loving the lyrical prose of this book. I’ve never read a Zane Grey novel, but I feel like this book has undercurrents of the best accounts about the vast West, while also entertaining the mind of a precocious boy who’s on an adventure. ⠀
Getting lost in this book has allowed me to also get found in coming-of-age stories that resonate with us all.
