    From an early age, people that lived on the Bigfork River were taught how not to get lost and if they did get turned around, how to get home.
   I used to hear how you could tell which way was north by watching the moss on the north side of a tree. But that sometimes was wrong and just got you in deeper trouble.
   Another way was to watch the North Star after dark. Just draw a line across the two end stars of the Big Dipper. It points to the North Star all the time every time.
   My last pearl of wisdom is to put a small stick in the ground, about twelve inches. Mark where the stick's shadow is. In about 30-45 minutes, mark where the shadow is again. Then draw a line between the points. It is always a perfect north south line.
   So if this doesn't work, watch the street signs or ask someone.
   My book "River of Seasons" is for sale on as  well as The Peace River Books blog is updated often.
   I invite you to visit "A River of Seasons" blog site each day for a small look into what life was like a long time ago.

Good Reading,
