    By Dean Clark

    Growing up in a tarpaper shack in the remote logging town of Headquarters was no picnic, but the author realizes it taught lessons and gave rewards that lasted him a lifetime. In this meticulous account, he recalls many details of the challenges and charms of the place, including the ice pond.

    The Ice Pond

    By Charlene Aycock
