About this title


"The Second Mile" provides a country boy's view of war--a view unlike any seen in literature before. What's it like to go through training camp and strive to hew to the inherent decency of your upbringing? (Book I) What's it like to be caught in a net of sexual circumstances that upbringing has never prepared you for, but your decency knows just what to do about? ("A Lady of Quality") What's it like to return home from war to that same community, knowing things no one else does nor would you want them to? (Book II) Erwin A. Thompson structures three compelling narratives based on vital moral choices.

From the Publisher:

While "The Second Mile" is fictional, the army experience and post-war adjustment of Sergeant Ed Mason have much in common with those of the author, Sergeant Erwin Thompson, who was decorated for heroism in World War II for a dangerous night patrol during which he was filled with shrapnel. The fictional hero and the author also have the same roots, in the work and music of rural Southern Illinois. The author's careful and vivid fictional interprtation of his own experience makes this a historical record of those times and places as well as a good yarn.

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
