Synopsis: Bridge Boatner has never forgotten the drama that unfolded at a summer camp in the Smoky Mountains in 1954. He was twenty-one then, art counselor at Camp Juniper, an environment lush with nature and buzzing with rowdy boys on the brink of manhood. Into their midst came a gifted boy tied to a terrible past and an equally mysterious future -- a future that would leave Bridge forever changed . . .

About the Author: Reynolds Price was born in Macon, North Carolina in 1933. He was reared and educated in his native state, taking his A.B. from Duke University. In 1955 he traveled to Merton College, Oxford where he studied for three years as a Rhodes Scholar. He then returned to Duke and began the teaching which he continues as James B. Duke Professor of English.

In 1962 his first novel A Long and Happy Life appeared. It received the William Faulkner Award and has never been out of print. In ensuing years he has published seven more novels. In 1986 his Kate Vaiden received the National Book Critics Circle Award. He has also published volumes of short stories, poems, plays, essays, translations and a memoir, Clear Pictures. His television play Private Contentment was commissioned by American Playhouse for its first season, and in 1989 his trilogy of plays New Music premiered at the Cleveland Play House.

He is a member of the National Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. His books have appeared in sixteen languages.
