The events of that small-town summer forever alter David Hayden's view of his family: his self-effacing father, a sheriff who never wears his badge; his clear sighted mother; his uncle, a charming war hero and respected doctor; and the Hayden's lively, statuesque Sioux housekeeper, Marie Little Soldier, whose revelations are at the heart of the story. It is a tale of love and courage, of power abused, and of the terrible choice between family loyalty and justice.

He teaches English at the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point and lives in Plover, Wisconsin.From AudioFile:
Beau Bridges's reading of this tragic story of a struggle between family loyalty and justice is outstanding. Twelve-year-old David Hayden's view of his family and his life is forever changed by the events in his small town. And, surprisingly, through a series of lies, the town itself is never totally aware of all the Hayden family problems and decisions. Bridges manages to convey the powerful emotions of David as well as all the adults involved. His subtle changes of tone and clear, distinct enunciation adds a richness and drama to Watson's characterizations. This fine work of fiction is enhanced and enriched by this narration. A real treasure! S.C.A. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
