My Homeplace on Banner Mountain
My sister painted the panorama from looking at snapshots from family albums, and from her memory. The pickup is a Chevrolet. When all seven children left home, my parents moved away from Banner to live near one of the children. As time went by, unattended, the house and structures gradually left, too. Now, only the storm shelter and two wells are reminders that our family once lived there. But memories of our Banner Mountain are still strong in the minds of four remaining siblings of the Baker Family.
