A small, horsey, winter resort town, Aiken, South Carolina, is forced through a major upheaval when the United States Atomic Energy Commission announces and then constructs a massive nuclear weapons plant during the beginning of the Cold War. The project is enormous in every respect, requiring 8,000 people to build it and as many as 22,000 employees to run it when completed. When it began operations, it encompassed 310 square miles and occupied a significant portion of two existing South Carolina counties. The main characters in "Sand River" include a promising orphaned baseball player destined for the Major Leagues and his best friend, who happens to be a pretty girl. All of the characters must adjust their lives to the changes brought on by the arrival of the plant, but one of them stumbles onto a disturbing secret that disrupts two entire families and causes everyone in the story into a new behavior and onto a different path. The terrible secret would compel one of the characters to disappear for years.

About the Author:

The author was born in Aiken, SC and lived there for the first eighteen years of his life. He was an observant young boy and witnessed the coming of the Savannah River Plant as an involved teenage student citizen. The story he tells in "Sand River" is a combination of true events involving real people mixed with a vivid imagination and fictional characters in a time span covering the late 1940s until the present. James B. Osbon attended the College of William and Mary, obtaining a degree in Economics. He is married to Bea McKay Osbon and they have two adult sons as well as three granddaughters. When they are not present at their home in Aiken's Sand River Condominiums, they reside on Amelia Island, Florida.
