It’s almost November. It’s getting cold here. The days are getting shorter. I’m already missing the colors and sounds of summer and fall. So today I’m going to play one of my all-time favorite stories, which just happens to be a story that’s filled with the sound of summer. It’s called Stories from the Green River, and it’s by my friend Scott Carrier, who produces Home of the Brave…and if you haven’t subscribed to it yet, you should. There is nothing like it…anywhere.
Scott tied a canoe to his station wagon and drove north from his home in Salt Lake City, to the Green River Lakes in the Wind River Mountains. That’s where the Green River–and this story–begins.
These stories originally aired on Weekend All Things Considered back in 1991. The music was written and performed by Pat King. To subscribe to Scott’s podcast, Home of the Brave, visit homebrave.com.
