A house made of steel looms in the White Mountains of Arizona. Local guys like Joe and Nathan roll up on their wheels, Nathan in a wheelchair and Joe in his RV-to talk, and share life stories. Joe has a background in construction and provides tools for the job application and words of wisdom from experience. Nathan bakes bread and brings it to Granny whereby she pays him $3 for a loaf. The talent and stories of lives culminate under this roof in this Quonset hut that is Bill Lightcap's gift to his wife and their marriage.
The guys get silent at that thought. They like to share their life stories of who they are and what they have been through. The mountains hold history of the migrating Mexicans and Mormons-the mountains offer new life and optimism to wanderers and searchers from other states in this America.
It's a place of winds and hammers; sharing and hardships. The contrast of snow and sun moment to moment layers us with a constant feeling of hope. If there is one thing that Concho, Arizona could not live without I might say water, or heat, or air conditioning; but the most important most life sustaining element at this time is knowing each other.
