Moving 400 miles isn’t easy. Now, imagine it was on horseback and by foot. Maria Luz Oppen, of Quincy, talks about being young and moving from Mexico to the U.S. in the 1950s. In this edition of StoryCorps Northwest, she has a conversation with longtime friend Harriet Weber of the Quincy Valley Historical Society.

This episode of StoryCorps Northwest was recorded at the Quincy Valley Historical Society’s Heritage Barn as part of Northwest Public Broadcasting’s centennial celebration.
