Author Blaine Colemanabout this book: These stories follow the life of a boy named Roland McCray growing up during the social confusion of the 1960's in a southern town immersed in Civil War history. Roland enjoys the things that all children do- rides his bike, flies kites, plays in the fields and woods, and catches frogs in the creek behind his house… But Roland notices that the world he sees around him and the things adults do don't match what he'd been told in school and church. He learns that people aren't always honest and that prejudice between races and religions hasn't completely changed in a hundred years.. Doubts grow in his developing conscience about what to believe and he's influenced by his grandfather's way of life: faith isn't a thing to be shown, the way it is at his church, but is a quiet, unwavering certainty that all things work out for the good of those who truly seek the good in life. Roland wants that same certainty his grandfather lives and begins to seek his own Path, his own way to finding the good in life and living the way God intends he should live. The sum of these stories offer a nostalgic look at growing up in the south and confronting the cultural and religious mores.

• "Ultimately, the story of Roland is mature, reflective, and riveting."

• "If I continue reading young adult books, my book case in our reading room will have a shelf labeled, "YA for Boomers," and "Tunnels in the Briar Patch" will have a prominent place there."
