About this product
- DescriptionIt is the summer of 1969 and the Vietnam War is raging, John Wayne dominates the theater marquee, and fourteen year old Billy Ward's world will crumble if he can't convince his eighteen year old brother Mike and Mike's best friend Stu to include him in a backpacking adventure. For the older boys, taking The Kid into the mountains is a burden to be avoided at all costs. Parental pressure finally forces them to offer Billy a test to see if he is worthy. Can Billy prove himself physically capable? And beyond that, how can he hope to earn the respect of the older boys? Brothers of Summer is a window into the hearts of teenagers in the 60's-a time when kids rode bikes, boys got drafted, parental abuse was often igred, and the bonds of friendship between teenagers were more important than nearly anything imaginable.
- Author BiographyAuthor Stan Morse was a teenager in the late 60's and early 70's. If it had not been for a snow skiing accident at age 17 which left him a paraplegic and in a wheelchair, Stan stood to be drafted and go to Vietnam. Now a lawyer, author and motivational speaker, living in central Washington, his novel Brothers of Summer shares vivid memories of that summer of 1969 in a coming-of-age story about three boys who struggle to understand and finally make an unconditional commitment to friendship. Morse is also the author of Circling the Earth in a Wheelchair (Kindle, Nook). His next novel Goering's Gold will be available in 2014.
