Pickens, is the story of the author's life, as written to his son.It is told as it happened - beginning with high hopes when America was at its peak, following a rich and unmapped path, and ending in disillusionment and an America in decline.It is a picaresque tale - populated by heroes, villains, and fools - of world travels, northern canoe trips, post-30s Vermont, post-60s Oregon, post-modern Key West, and post mid-life ice hockey.It is a classic tragedy - of promise and failure - romantic, parental, and professional.It is about a love affair with architecture and women, wilderness and impossible dreams.And it is an ode to the epic in ordinary life.
