TRACK 2: Mrs. Frye continues by discussing the naming of the Mountain View district; a story about shooting a bear who was after their sheep; another story about a grouse chase where her brother played a trick on her; baking bread and using it as bait to catch a bear (unsuccessfully); and a description of her mother's character.
