    Grizzley Lake covers a few weeks in the life of Bobby, in the summer of 1969. I, too, grew up in Portland, Oregon, on the Southeast side and remember many of the locations mentioned in this book. I could have been one of the girls staying at the Girl Scout camp across the lake from these boys. You may relate to Brian, who falls off the top bunk of a bed almost every night, or recall the days when brawls were the entrance fee you paid for friendships, and survival in the neighborhood.

    Bobby describes Harry Truman, of Spirit Lake, as a tough man that doesn't hand out praise easily. I recall Mr. Truman in television interviews before the eruption of Mt. Saint Helen's. He was a straight-talking, no BS kind of guy, and the book substantiates this impression from the eyes of a hardworking 10 year old boy.

    Give "Grizzley Lake" a try. Leave it around the house. Maybe a child will be inspired to READ something instead of play a game on the couch. Remember the days when we spent all day out of the house? If you are a fifty-something..... this book will trigger some of your childhood escapades. I know it did for me.
