She said the bark was from a hike in Spokane. That is SO COOL to me because Sherman Alexie just happens to be one of my favorite authors, and is from that area. It's beautiful, I love it! Thanks, Jill!
I've never heard of Sherman Alexie, guess I will have to look her up. I love it when books I read take place near where I live. I just finished Patricia Brigg's werewolf books and she comes to Spokane in one of them. <3 I'm glad you like it!
