  • During the Youth Camp last summer at Pine Ridge, our storyteller showed up on Wednesday with a young man in tow. His name was Anthony and he was walking across America. Just for the experience. He began in Long Island and had hooked up with Jerome at a different summer camp where Jerome had been storytelling. Anthony hitched a ride to the next stop: Pine Ridge.

    Anthony carried all his belongings for the trek on this carriage and slept in his little tent. I was fascinated by the stories by both these men. One in the Lakota tradition and one in the Kerouac. We worked together for a few days and on Sunday, we took him to Belle Fourche and watched him unload our rental trunk of all his gear and pack up. We fed him and watered him with some local brew and watched him turn toward the setting sun and start walking. The mother in me was anxious, and the explorer was envious.
