9781595942883: Small Moments in Time: Memories of Lassen County

The panoramic landscape of a rural Northern California community is enhanced by the humor, decency and courage of the people who live there. Seventy-nine storytellers, sponsored by the California Council for the Humanities, write of their lives in poignant memoir, narrative non-fiction, poetry and fiction. The book captures a wide variety of voices, universal in their clear expression of memorable events. The result is a sweeping view of life on ranches and farms, images of lakes, rivers, mountains and forests, and experiences in tribal campgrounds, logging mills and small towns. In her Foreword, Teresa Dixon, a Culture Bearer of the Washoe and Northern Paiute Tribes, acknowledges cultural differences and expresses the hope "....that through our stories, with respect and love, we can come to some understanding of who we all are today and look forward to who we will be tomorrow." Glen Wemple, a descendent of early settlers, writes in his Foreword of his gratitude to the California Council for the Humanities "...for recognizing the value of listening to the people who live here." Small Moments in Time is a great read.
