  • Joliet Cafe
  • Road Trip 
  • Chicken, Alaska 
  • " I didn't notice how long your hair was."
  • "I was the first one to buy a car on my reservation.... I owned that car along with my brother Stephan. We owned it together until his boots filled....My talent was I could always make money" (pg. 1)
  • Return Home From War
  • "We went places in that car, me and Stephen. A little bit of insurance money came through from the fire and we took off driving all one whole summer. I cant tell you all of the places we went to." (pg. 2)
  • Fixing the Red Convertible
  • "We got up there and never wanted to leave.  The sun doesn't truly set there in summer ad the night is more a soft dusk. You might doze off, sometimes, but before you know it you're up again like an animal in nature. you never feel like you have to sleep hard or put away the world." (pg.3)
  • Pembina and the Red River
  • My boots are filling
  • "I'd bought a color TV...He sat in front of it, watching it, and that was the only time he was completely still. But it was the kind of stillness that you see in a rabbit before it freezes and before it will bolt" (pg 5)
  • "I felt good about Stephen at the time, close to him. I felt good having his picture on the wall until one nigh i was looking at the television." (pg. 7)
  • Smile!
  • "My boots are filling" He says. He says this in a normal voice, like he just noticed and he doesn't know what to think of it. Then he's gone... I put the car into first gear and then i take my foot off the clutch. I get out close the door and watch it plow softly into the water." (pg. 10)
