Synopsis: In the summer of 1934, Johnny Varble is six years old. He lives on a farm with his family near the small town of Santa Susana California. Johnny's peaceful world is jolted when a stranger with a checkered past arrives to live at the farm. As the long hot summer progresses, Johnny is confronted with decisions that a six-year-old should not have to make. A pretty girl from Oklahoma creates confusing emotions, and a brutal crime gets the small town buzzing with suspicion. Johnny attempts to unravel the mysteries as he watches the world around him, and is confronted with the harsh realities of depression-era life.

About the Author: The author is a life-long resident of the Simi Valley, nestled between the Santa Susana Mountains and the Simi Hills, just northwest of the Great Los Angeles Basin. She spent much of her childhood riding horseback through most of the locations described in this book. The history of the Valley, especially the details of early 20th century life there, has always fascinated her. She has been an active member of the Simi Valley Historical Society for several decades. The author's husband of 35 years was born in the Simi Valley in 1928 and spent his entire childhood there. Through the years he described to her in great detail what life was like in the small community during the Depression-era of the mid-1930s. Hearing those stories (and countless other oral histories from many of the Simi Valley "old timers" she was surrounded by as a child) inspired her to record them in a way that is both entertaining and enlightening for anyone with an interest in this intriguing area of Southern California.
