Overview

Ranging in time from the early 20th century to the present, Wind Water Waves, a collection of nine short stories, chronicles how a varied cast of characters’ lives are tied to "The River." The collection begins with "The Last of the Old Timers," the story of four individuals pulling a boat in the fall and recollecting their lives together. Four of the stories, told from different points of view, revolve around a group of young adults grappling with the death of a friend while also realizing that their season of youthful play in a summer wonderland is ending as they are forced to limit their time at the river and test their relationships with each other. "With the River and In the Wind" recalls a harrowing trip across the winter ice when a horse-drawn sleigh crashes through, killing the horses and forcing young Ben into an abandoned cabin until the storm passes. Later, he must confront death again when he recovers the body of a close family friend. "The Midnight Lady" recounts the attempt of two brothers to rob a riverside bank by boat in a fog. "Mom Makes River a Garden" reflects a memory that has blossomed with time. The book ends with "River Murmurs," a glance back to an event in the lives of the characters from the first story.

It is a cave with4 sections. The first section is for all the injured cats and for check ups. The next section off to the left is small with shelf like hollows in the wall for herbs. If you exit....off to the right is a big room that will hold the sick cats. Exit to the main place and go to the middle and there is a room big enough for 2 giant cats to sleep in. In the cave there is cracks that allow sunlight in and no rain. There is also a patch of moss growing by a big pool of water for the thirsty cats.
