It's the end of August when noon temperatures soared above 110; truly crazy weather. South Boy (named by his Hupa nurse; he had been born down-river), a fourteen year old white boy with unkept tangled locks, assesses the meaning of life. It was certain that being responsible meant "taking on disagreable jobs no on else wanted", and, at the current rate of events, time to fish would soon be gone. It was also clear that his Indian friends, "unfaced with distressing alternatives" were all happy people. So it was, South Boy quit ranch life to take off with his Mojave friend, Havek. A splendid story of two boys on the brink of manhood, each with a foot in eachother's culture, both of which master storyteller Charles McNichols understood well.
