Wind of the East, Wind of the West, wandering to and fro Chant your songs in your topmost boughs, that the sons of men may know The peerless pine was the first to come, and the pine will be the last to go!

— Robert Service

Description The literary publication of the school during the boarding school year of 1942.  Written by students and containing fiction, prose, and poetry. The first creative writing publication written and printed by the students at Pine Mountain Settlement School. First published in 1930 as the Pine Cone and later replaced by Conifer, the volumes in the early years duplicate one another in part, and issue numbers can be confusing, but the run of the periodical is largely well documented by volume and issue.
