In this coming-of-age memoir, Alice Koskela captures that peculiar mix of innocence and ruthlessness that is childhood - that time when we know far less than we think we do, and far more than any adult might guess. The Pull of Moving Water describes the cultural simmering of the 1950s and the explosion of the 1960s from the vantage point of a girl growing up inside those years, yet impossibly removed from anything that seems to matter. She's stuck on an irrigated farm in southern Idaho, a state so remote and uncool that Dick Clark mocks it on American Bandstand.
