      I have it from the lips of Indians the Doctor was not only "Skookum," but he was a "Skookum Tumtum"; to translate, "Was not only a strong enduring man, but a cheery, brave man, ready to endure all things and suffer all things, saying nothing, or making a merry jest of what some travelers might call dangerous hardships."Pat Wearmouth is a retired forester with a strong interest in the history. Skookum gives voice to the women of the family, who, writes Applegate, "as surely as certain stitches have held the generations together." Her female kin "kept the time" by cherishing and protecting the thousands of family letters, journals, recollections, manuscripts, sketchbooks, and photographs.

      Skookum has a fondness for the outdoors, but his greatest interest is the "shiny red and golden apples" of the region. On the final page we are told "he works hard.".
