“The Red Flyer”
I was, as I know now, a precocious child. It’s a wonder my mother survived.
My first memories were at the Sarter House in Yreka, California.
Old houses there were named after the families that built them. In a way it was really nice, because somehow they never died. A brass plate on the house now says, The Sarter House. Eighty-one years ago, Yreka ended or began there on Gold Street.
