About the Author:

Timothy Hillmer is an instructor at the University of New Hampshire's Summer Writing Institute.

From Library Journal:

When young Cruz takes a job with the Forest Service, he doesn't realize it will change his life. Crawdad teaches him how to hook dead bodies on the Kern River in California. Walker, a former friend of Crawdad, has other things to teach Cruz, as does Rita, an older woman. When the three men plan a ride down the treacherous upper Kern, old stories and new challenges result in a death. Descriptions of the rapids and the rescues are first-rate, and the characterizations are on target, especially of Cruz's alcoholic father, Frank. This very satisfying first novel should do well in public libraries.
