They wouldn’t let me get into school, and I was afraid—” I steered him out of the crowded parking lot, and we strolled quietly toward the square. It was silly not to have any place to go, but that was the truth of it. “All right, let’s hear your story,” I said. He looked hopefully back toward the house. “Any chance you could invite me to sit down? ” Wallace Ford was principal of Kraft County Consolidated High School.

And any time you were tempted to think that it was somehow a fake, that the nor- 32 Mary Jane Engh—Arslan [e-reads] mal United States existed right over there on the other side of the boundary, you came smack up against the fact of what didn’t come across.
