Dandelion WineBook - 1990
The only god living in Green Town, Illinois, that Douglas Spaulding knew of.The facts about John Huff, aged twelve, are simple and soon stated.He could pathfind more trails than any Choctaw or Cherokee since time began.Could leap from the sky like a chimpanzee from a vine.Could live underwater two minutes and slide fifty yards downstream.Could hit baseballs into apple trees, knocking down harvests.Could jump six-foot orchard walls.Ran laughing.Sat easy.Was not a bully.Was kind.Knew the words to all the cowboy songs and would teach you if you asked.Knew the names of all the wild flowers and when the moon would rise or set and when the tides came in or out.He was, in fact, the only god living in the whole of Green Town, Illinois, during the twentieth century that Douglas Spaulding knew of.

Bees do have a smell, you know, and if they don't they should, for their feet are dusted with spices from a million flowers.
