Mrs. Trowbridge occasionally wrote journal pages regarding the history behind the Trowbridge shrews that lived in the rain forest. She called these her "primer pages". Wars and protests would drive shrews from distant lands to flee their homes and take to the air in search of a better life across the Great Sea. These ancient shrews were called "Wind Riders". In the above page from her journal, Mrs. T talks about the wind journeys made by her ancestors in their tiny air basket huts.
