About the Book

On the edge of a two-sided world, Jay Shoulders, conceived but never born, wrestles with his wild Rogue roots and memories of a spirit lost somewhere in Laos. A fisherman at Unalaska, Alaska, Jay offers refuge to a stranded foreign fleet Observer and to a petty drug dealer, thereby setting into motion his flight to Kodiak, Kenai, Ketchikan and on into British Columbia before he returns, alone. But as he stays awake day after day while sailing up the Gulf of Alaska, he sees visions of a future son already beginning to grow, visions that stir his Native roots.
