Summary: "Emily had always loved Wilby, even though she'd never really believed in it. She knew it was a real place, of course, the same way that Mark Twain's Mississippi River was a real place, the same way that Jack London's Alaska was a real place. But she'd never believed in the Wilby that existed in her mother's memory, the Wilby where Mary MacKenzie had set a record for knitting the world's longest scarf, and old Eddie Havscomb had kept a pet moose, and little Walter MacDonald had climbed the water tower to rescue a stranded pelican."
This was recorded for the 2008 amplificathon challenge as well as a belated birthday present for the author.
