Westerly Again recounts a piece of a long walk to the Pacific. The Saugus River flows down to the Atlantic past the First Iron Works in America (1636-42), across from my home. We drove a friend from here to a Canada-bound train to start his walking journey west across Canada. We didn’t see him for 10 years.
