Narrator Adam Verner's deep, resonant voice transports listeners back to Camp Chippewa, 1962. That is where this audiobook begins its account of 13-year-old Nelson Doughty's life. Throughout the years, Nelson goes from camper to counselor and, later, sees his friend's son and grandson become campers. But then something unimaginable happens, and Nelson finds himself in a difficult situation. Verner brings the necessary pathos to a story that spans decades. He ably gives life to these boys who become men and to the boys that follow. Butler's story, as read by Verner, examines what it means to be a man, exploring the ideas of family, friendship, morality, and bravery.
