One of the little things about Forever that I liked was the mention of Inwood Hill Park (if you didn't get there yet, you will soon). A friend of mine grew up in Inwood, which is the very most northern neighborhood on Manhattan Island, and we took our kids to that park. It's the only part of Manhattan still in its natural state.

What a nice memory! I love stuff like that!

I didn't get to read AT ALL yesterday and last night, but I absolutely MUST tonight. I'm loving this book!

Default Native Am Poetry and History

I'm reading poetry by Wendy Rose. First read The Halfbreed Chronicles and Other Poems and now reading Bone Dance (poems from 1965-1993). A woman I much admire.

Am also in the midst of a Jack Forbes history book: Apache, Navaho, and Spaniard.

I finished Snow in August by Pete Hamill.

It's a wonderful book set in Brooklyn of the 40s (Hamill's stomping grounds). Basically it's a coming of age story about an eleven year old boy. I really enjoyed it until the last few pages. The ending nearly spoiled the book for me.

Hamill is a truly fine writer. I plan to read more of his work.
