Mystic Isle by John J Mahoney

A coming-of-age tale told in eight parts.

Toiling under a hot summer sun in the early Sixties, a group of laborers built an entire community on nothing but mud and swamp. A mottled cast of characters, the crewmen found a connection in their work and a comfort in sharing a drink when the day was done.

Among them was the kid, a young man working his way through college by laying bricks over school breaks. What he discovered on Mystic Isle was as valuable as anything he'd learn in the classroom. These are his stories.
