They lived in a very small neighborhood near the top of Mount Shumont in the southeast corner of Boncombe County, North Carolina. A special place called the Little Knot. The sights, sounds, smells, tastes and touches of their home are special. They almost lost their home and more, but by the grace of God and the efforts of many, they will live to tell More adventures.

“Let’s let them say a little bit in their own words:

“‘Our old home has changed,’ Brewster explained. “As I looked down on the creek this morning, all the bushes we used to hide in were gone. The ground is black. There are no berries anywhere for us to eat. I’m afraid we’ll have to move to the other side of the mountain.

“‘Oh, Brewster,’ said Jenny sadly. “I really don’t want to take the kids out of our woods, but we have to find food! “

“‘We’re all going to be fine. We still have our family. We’re going to find another meadow with lots of berries. Let’s get started!’ Brewster said.

“‘But Brost!’ called Chippy. “Will you come back to see us? “
