Professor Owl’s has read the book and this is his review on it:
Bruce Stacy’s writing paints this book with dense color. His characters are so well developed that I felt I knew them all very well and that I was actually on the trip myself fishing and camping. I don’t want to give anything away here, but it was a thoroughly satisfying and exciting read.
