Etta and Otto and Russell and James (Large Print / Hardcover)
I’ve gone. I’ve never seen the water, so I’ve gone there. I’ve left you the truck. I can walk. I will try to remember to come back.
Terrific -- Highly recommended— Frayda

“Eighty-three-year-old Etta Vogel quietly sets out one day to walk 3,200 kilometers to the coast of Canada for her first view of the ocean. As Etta travels, author Hooper gently and poignantly reveals a lifetime of morally charged events that shaped Etta as well as her husband, Otto, and her lifelong friend, Russell. This is a beautiful and sometimes hauntingly stark portrait of three WWII-generation lives, sprinkled with the wise counsel of a loyal coyote named James. I loved it!”
