In 1944, fifteen-year-old farm boy George Cooper goes on a Texas-sized mystical journey to find his father, lost in the Second World War.
A letter from the Army carries bad news-Delroy Cooper is missing in action. George leaves behind a mother, grandmother and girlfriend on their Texas farm and joins the Army to search for his father in Europe. With no training and borrowed dog tags, he finds himself in a place both foreign and frightening.
Set during the greatest struggle of the twentieth century, BUTTERMILK MOON is a distillation of what it means to be an American-a mythical connection to the land and family and mystic communion with past generations. George's quest evokes the human will to survive, the human capacity for suffering and the perseverance to be near those we love.
