If there ever was any info on Fennario in the Dylan Atlas, it has been lost! The Grand Coulee Dam burst all over it, but has now been swept up. Can anyone help with Fennario?

      Bob Dylan once put it like this:
        "I been all around this whole country,
         but I ain't never yet found Fennario."
      Nothing like the empirical approach, if you can stand the miles.

I think Joan Baez also recorded this song. that's my $.02

Sweet William, the hero whose marriage proposal Peggy-O turns down because he is not rich enough for her mother, is from Fennario. A fenn is a bog. So Fennario is a place of the bogs.

Those of us with a fondness for the Dead also note the place "Fennario" in Dire Wolf - the wolves are running wild there.
