From the Back Cover
I brought her frozen huckleberries for her to eat. The tart memory of our adventures came back, and we talked as we ate them. We recalled the secret hollow that we had found a few years ago, where the berry bushes were thick and lush when the others were all picked over.
She turned to her son Zach.
"I want there to be huckleberries in the house this year," she said to him. "If I can't make it, promise me you'll go, so there will be huckleberries."
"I promise," he said.
"The berries were the best last year," she said. "There weren't as many as you'd like, but the ones we had were so, so sweet."
I started writing this four years ago when the dust from the rutted road was still on the dashboard of my truck.
I started writing this when the smell of the summer pine was still fresh in my mind.
I started writing this in a darkened hospital room alone with my sister, with snow falling outside and Christmas lights shining through her window.
The years since have been both cruel and kind, filled with torture, hard work and medical miracles. She fought for these years. She found the strength and joy each August to meet us on Mount Adams. To chat and laugh with Amy in the berry.Not far from Indian Heaven.
The days of summer are deceptive and cruel.
The sun greets you in the morning and lingers late and warm into the evenings. It tricks you into believing in forever
