About this title


Eddy Peters returns stateside after two tours in Iraq, struggling with relationships, authority, and the haunting memory of his slain captain. He flees to the backwater town of Monte Rio along the Russian River in northern California for solitude and recovery. However, he is soon swept up in a bitter political battle. The locals are divided over a bond measure that would provide the tax money needed for the construction of a treatment plant. Some fear the inevitable invasion of bureaucratic agencies and developers. Others agree with their chamber president and a deep-pocket Bohemian, hopeful for a financial facelift of their decaying hamlet. Eddy bonds with a golf course superintendent, a masseuse, a bumbling pot grower and a defrocked priest to fight the powers to be. Quirky twists, fate and greed intervene to settle the matter.


 "You can never get too crazy when speaking of the magic that is part of Monte Rio's Vacation Wonderland. In the Rough captures the wackiness that is owned by the characters along the river. Don't miss out."-The THUGZ ( Tribal Hippie Underground Zone)"In the Rough is the best mix of eclectic characters since On the Road. John McCarty's wild ride through the anti-establishment denizens of the Russian River in Sonoma County is a throwback treat that will appeal to GenX as well as all the aging hippies still out there. Read it when you have time to not put it down." -Mike Reilly, past president of the California Coastal Commission."In the Rough captures the heart of local politics in its most basic and repugnant form. A must read." -Gil Loescher, Professor of International Politics at Oxford University, England."The author's rascals, villains and hustlers accept each other for what they are, take care of each other when the chips are down and somehow find ways to keep their lives going." -Sonoma County Gazette
