Overview

The setting is a quaint village on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee, in the spring and summer of the year 1956. Teenage antics, romance and mishaps provide humor and tension as Dicky pursues his goal of accomplishing a three-day backpacking solo trip in the mountains to prove his manhood, a family tradition going back many generations. Major characters from three different generations make this more than a teen book. Dicky’s grandfather provides wisdom based on his Native American heritage. Senior Citizens will not only relate to the Town Elders but also find themselves reminiscing about how things were back in the middle of the twentieth century. Dicky’s boyhood crush, Patsy, offers a feminist viewpoint through the eyes of a thirteen-year-old girl with a strong yet delightful personality. Her summer job as a dock jumper, delivering mail to the island residents, expands the story to a girl’s coming of age as well. The hunting, fishing, boating and backpacking adventures will appeal to adventurers of all ages.
