Salamanca Tree Hiddle
Sal, whose mother has died in a bus accident about a year prior to the beginning of the narrative, sets out to visit the site of the accident and her mother's grave in Lewiston, Idaho in hopes that she can bring her mother back
During the trip west with her grandparents, Sal relays the tale of her friend Phoebe's mother's disappearance. The retelling helps Sal realize the complexity of her own mother's decision to leave home. When they have almost reached the site of the accident, Sal's grandmother falls ill, and Sal, who is thirteen, must drive the car down the treacherous slopes to the accident site herself
Sal makes the perilous drive during the dead of night, but once at the site of the crash, she accepts the impossibility of her desire to bring her mother back
Sal and her father return to their home in Bybanks, Kentucky and learn to live without Sal's mother
Sal's acceptance of Margaret Cadaver foreshadows her ability to let go of her mother; Gram's sense of satisfaction at seeing Old Faithful foreshadows her death
