I wished summer would never end. I wished I could do this all year and never have to go back to school. I wished I could pick berries and go fishing with Ma-ma-oo and spend all my days wandering.”

One Final Bonus – Eden Robinson Quote 

“B’gwus is famous because of his wide range of homes. In some places, he’s called Bigfoot. In other places, he’s Yeti, or the Abominable Snowman, or Sasquatch. To most people, he is the equivalent of the Loch Ness monster, something silly to bring the tourist in. His image is even used to sell beer, and he is portrayed as a laid-back kind of guy, lounging on mountaintops in patio chairs, cracking open a frosty one.”
― Eden Robinson, Monkey Beach
