It is the summer of 1970, but any teen summer really. At seventeen, Dave leaves home to wash dishes for room and board at a resort in the Northwoods of Minnesota. Resort life engages him with a cast of quirky, endearing characters. A human cannonball, a talking dog, a summer love, and joint thievery all make for a time rich with adventure, humor, warmth, and friendship. This is a fun lighthearted read.
