Delone Taylor didn't belong. Raised on welfare by a solo mother in small town Wisconsin, he rebelled against the labels, the charity and the assumptions. He didn't fit in at the University, either, where he carefully shielded his past from friends and strangers alike. He didn't know if he belonged anywhere- even in the shell he'd built around himself.

The bicycle was his escape, but he couldn't ride away from his past, including an ancient past that preceded civilization itself.

When a singular woman from a wealthy family pierces his shell, Delone is forced to confront the one thing he can control; how he navigates an immovable past in a fluid present.

Bikes, glaciers, the Vietnam War, and the Driftless Area of Wisconsin come together in a coming-of-age tale that explores the relationship between forces beyond our control and our reactions to them.
