in Kns'ern America. My home wa ■■
in Bastrn North t'arcdina and I had
nt'c been on a mountain before.
But you know, one of the most re
markable experiences possible to a
human soul i- to climb to the top of
the world and just stand for one
hour,— f you never stand any long
er. and just look down on this world,
not up. When very voumr about Id,
I went up to Asheville with my old
er brother who bad just married and
we went no this magnif icient peak
of Mount Mitchell. For the whole
| afternoon we traveled on the banks
j of the: Swannanoa until we reai
j ed t he bouse where we spent the

jut out from the Blue Ridge and

the wonderful clean n r and looked

knocked around me and I awoke. I
