For Jody Dayton, the summer of 1943 marks the change from a boy to a man. Death, murder, love, hate, lies and growing self-confidence push him toward adulthood. After being sent to the mountains to live with his forest ranger grandfather, Jody discovers why his mother and grandfather are estranged and why his father might be so distant. At the same time, he meets and falls in love with a beautiful mountain girl who not only teaches Jody about trout fishing, but also about life.

About the Author
Since retiring, Don has reconnected with his creative side as a painter, woodcarver and writer. His paintings and Santa Claus carvings are now parts of hundreds of collections. His previous books include the murder mystery A Dying Flame and Mama's Quilt and Blizzard the White River Otter, a children's book about an orphaned river otter adopted by a North Carolina family after the great flood of 1916.
When not writing, carving or painting, Don fills his time by tutoring immigrants in their journey to become US citizens, teaching fly fishing through the Pisgah Wildlife Education Center on his beloved Davidson River and by dancing to beach music at the American Legion Hall. Don's family includes a very smart grandson, two beautiful daughters and two great sons-in-laws who both are computer whizzes.
