Lost Arrow and Other True Stories contains eleven nonfiction tales based on the author's life: He is a rock climber, foreign traveler, and carpenter. Also, he spent 14 years tracing the obscure roots of a small African-American community where he lived and worked after graduating from Stanford in 1970.Rather than examining his subjects from the outside, Scott C. Davis reports from within. He is engaged -- a position which yields special insight and gives the reader an opportunity to delve into distinctly different worlds.

From the Author:

Resigned to be who I am-a carpenter, a traveler, a mountain climber, a resident of a sleepy Pacific seafaring town, a lover of African-American culture-I write on. Then I notice that my stories have begun to grow together in unexpected ways, establishing their own authority, pulling ideas into alignment as they go.

Review:

If the craft of writing is to regain its place as the hallmark of our culture, we must think of words as precious objects. Such is the achievement of Scott C. Davis in Lost Arrow. -- Joegil Lundquist, Literacy Unlimited
