Grizzly Bears And A Literary Link
If young Peter Girenas can get enough backing, then he will lead an exploratory expedition into the interior of the North American continent. And he thinks that he can do it. Chapter Three ends:
"He turned west. Hills rose on the edge of sight, blue and dreaming. Hills and mountains, the rivers like inland seas and the plains full of buffalo, Alder Gulch and its gold...grizzlies and Indians and wolves, oh, my!" (p. 54)
Three (at least) points of interest in this paragraph:
West! - this exploration happened in our universe and will now happen in a second universe;
the use of the word "dreaming";
the concluding phase. See here.
