At the end of one valley, in a cabin beside Magic Mountain Creek, lives Alfred McAdam, a goat farmer supplying skins to the glove trade and his dog Carson. Originally from Belfast he moved there with his Catholic wife to get away from the troubles when partition began. Following tragedy in the Spanish Flu pandemic Alfred lives alone, and Jo becomes fascinated by the books he chooses.
