I LED a wonderful life on my British Columbia farm. It was selfish but perfect. The absolute freedom is what appealed to me most in living alone. And those B. C. mountains—how they grip one!” Ruth Eden’s blue eyes, shapping with enthusiasm, seemed to reflect the indomitable spirit of the sparkling, snow-capped peaks of which she spoke.By DOROTHY G.
