The New York Times refers to this as a "gut punch of a novel" and we agree! This tale unfolds over three generations at a Boy Scout camp in Wisconsin, and explores what it means to be a good man in a changing America. Beginning in 1962, we meet our protagonist, Nelson Doughty. Nelson survives bullying, a trying relationship with his only friend Jonathan, the Vietnam War, and so much more. This is a panoramic novel about the slippery definitions of good and evil, family and fidelity, the challenges and rewards of lifelong friendships, the bounds of morality—and redemption.
