I had nair trouble air time he used "air," meaning "every," or "any." This seems authentic Appalachian dialect, although it did nair appear in the short stories written in the 1950's,
which just seemed altogether "fresher" and more alive than the novels written in the late 1970's and early 1980's. I kept wondering whatever had happened to Evadare,
John's true love who was ready to go anywhere with him when they left Hosea's Hollow. She is mentioned, but does not appear.
I have known and remembered John since I was fourteen, and I am now sixty. John is our own mythic hero, our personal and our national Robin Hood, Knight Errant, and Aragorn.
Somewhere he is still wandering alone through the Mountains of Magic, forever young, forever true of heart, forever simple, mysterious, and forever American.
Sometimes I almost hear his songs, and sometimes he tells new stories to me, just as he did for Mr. Wellman.
A superb story teller, Wellman has a large vocabulary coupled with an ability to use it.
