One Indian Summer tells the timeless story of a boy growing up on a farm in the 1950s. Steven Moar, a teenager with intellectual leanings, feels an irresistable pull toward the city and a university education, yet his loyalty to his father and the family farm pulls him just as hard in the other direction.

Wayne Curtis portrays the region and the times with authority and vividness. A devoted resident of New Brunswick's Miramichi region, Curtis writes from his own experience of growing to manhood on a beloved farm doomed to failure by mechanization.
