For years, "Big Walter" Huffman had dreamed of becoming Georgia's Director of Public Safety.

Now his big opportunity was at hand. The governor's chief aide said all he had to do was find the body of the governor's college-age son who had been swept into the raging waters of the Tallulah River in North Georgia.

After three days, however, "Big Walter," armed with all of the body-finding technology the twentieth century had to offer, came up with absolutely nothing. Then one of the locals suggested he talk to an old Indian who lived up on the river.

This is "Big Walter's" story.


"Unsurpassed dichotomoy in a short story."

"Technology versus nature, truth versus lies, peace versus anxiety, money versus richness, humbleness versus pride, and those just scratch the surface of this multi-faceted tale. Once again the author, John Isaac Jones, sets the stage with a short and concise development of both plot and character that will serve to bring several aspects of moral teachings into fruition. Just when you think the story is running out of time (it's only 24-minutes long), the conclusion hits you right between the eyes and leaves you to contemplate the depths of our own humanness with which it has dealt. Five stars all the way!" - Amazon reviewer
