One summer in the 1970s, Glenn A. Reed traveled to a primitive cabin, no electricity, in the Eastern Sierra Nevada. There, seated at his manual Underwood typewriter and accompanied only by his loyal Dalmatian, he returned in memory to Fort Bragg, California, where he taught high school from 1935 to 1937. The result, this posthumous novel, provides a look at the life of a school-teacher in what was then an isolated town in Northern California in the depths of the Great Depression.
