Gene Stark about this book: Water and dirt are two of the most common elements, yet in rural Minnesota they form the basic essentials of all life. Water and dirt, either by their over-abundance or shortage can determine success or failure, even life or death.
Rough-hewn, unique characters, cut from the woods and waters of the Minnesota countryside will long haunt your memory with their endearing honesty. You will find throughout the book that the ordinary is truly extra-ordinary.
The narrator, handicapped and orphaned from birth is honed and formed into a successful entrepreneur. The 'salt of the earth' characters who influence him in his formative years, are the folks we find down the road as we visit rural life out here in Flyover Country. Throughout the book the outdoor adventures typical to the life of rural folks, permeate the story and set the tone of a lifestyle rich in the mystery and tradition of rural Minnesota.
