In the closing days of Greyfeather #2: Catch, I have come across a new phenomena: Parents purchasing copies to save and gift to their son or daughter once they are older. One parent is going so far as to prepare an entire box of stuff to pass on at the proper coming-of-age point. I think this is all very neat, especially since things are so instant payoff in our culture. Furthermore, itís interesting to inscribe the stories over to someone who is 1 or 2 or 4 knowing that they will read it years from now once they are older while, as I write, also thinking about what it means that the parent is a stranger-friend,

And how this relates to themes in the Greyfeather story.
