Description:

This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: In 1939--and for several decades preceding that year--the only way to cross the river at Millerville, Illinois, was by ferry. It seemed there always was a ferry in Millerville. Buck Shyrock, the local ferryman, knew that better than most. Being a ferryman was in Buck's blood--his grandfather and father both had ferried folks across the Wabash, from the Illinois side to the Indiana side and back again. To Buck's way of thinking, Millerville was a "ferry town . and it'll keep on bein' a ferry town." Even though in recent years there was talk of building a bridge across the river, that's all it was--just talk. Buck was sure of it. Buck's certainty is shaken, however, by the appearance of Floyd Bailey, a roll of blueprints tucked firmly under his arm, and by the growing awareness that Bailey is to act as project engineer on the erection of a suspension bridge--a bridge that will mean the end of Buck's way of life.

In 1939--and for several decades preceding that year--the only way to cross the river at Millerville, Illinois, was by ferry. It seemed there always was a ferry in Millerville. Buck Shyrock, the local ferryman, knew that better than most. Being a ferryman was in Buck's blood--his grandfather and father both had ferried folks across the Wabash, from the Illinois side to the Indiana side and back again. To Buck's way of thinking, Millerville was a ''ferry town ... and it'll keep on bein' a ferry town.'' Even though in recent years there was talk of building a bridge across the river, that's all it was--just talk. Buck was sure of it.

Buck's certainty is shaken, however, by the appearance of Floyd Bailey, a roll of blueprints tucked firmly under his arm, and by the growing awareness that Bailey is to act as project engineer on the erection of a suspension bridge--a bridge that will mean the end of Buck's way of life.

About the Author: Gregory Randle grew up on the Wabash River in southeastern Illinois. He was raised to have a wary respect for the river, hearing stories of its bounty as well as its hidden dangers, such as its mysterious undercurrent that claimed the lives of even experienced swimmers. Later, when he was old enough to patch holes in an old wooden boat and operate a small motor loaned to him by his grandfather, Randle spent hours on the river reveling in its wildness and beauty. He now lives near St. Cloud, Minnesota with his wife Janelle. Randle has two sons, Elliot and Samuel. This is his first novel.
