While the country moves to the far right and sacrifices freedom for security, a small cadre of "old slow guys" in a bucolic Northern California town peacefully take over their local government to see their visions of peace, tolerance, and harmony become the law of their small land.But even as their cherished principles blossom in the village, dark clouds of oppression gather over their beloved nation. Their leader soon finds himself sentenced to die for a televised accident.His gripping last 24 hours is conveyed in his own voice - one rich with suspense, reflection, incisive wit and lush narrative. Beliefs are tested and honor challenged while the minutes inexorably tick away to the final decision, reducing his life to A MATTER OF TIME.

About the Author

Ed Davis began his writing career forty years ago, pausing in boxcars, under streetlamps and in hobo jungles to record the beats and rhythms of the road as he caught freight trains and vagabonded around the Pacific Northwest and Canada. In the decades since, while his destinations and modes of travel may have changed, his quest to capture the essence of the traveling experience has remained true.

Davis lives a short distance from Jack London's famous Beauty Ranch and from the sprawling institution that is the setting for his latest story, "In All Things". During the summer of 1970, when he was just seventeen, he enrolled in the psychiatric technician training program at Sonoma State Hospital in Eldridge, California. Now, over forty years after completing his training, Davis has penned a fictionalized account of his experiences. "In All Things" offers a candid perspective on the way things used to be inside the wards and behind the closed doors of US mental institutions.
