This debut book by T. Daniel Mason explores the coming of age of a young surfer from Florida as he journeys into the Vietnam War.
From high school track star to US Army basic training, Ron Tucker is on the mission of his young life. At only eighteen, he has to trade in his surfboard for an Army uniform, a gun, and a dangerous world in the middle of the war in Vietnam.
This book follows him from life on the beach to a life of grueling training and a whole new group of brothers. While he’s away, he misses his girl back home…his high school sweetheart, but does she really miss him? Ron has a bad feeling that ole “Jody” has stolen his girl. Doubtful and worried, he tries to focus on his new life, but no letters arrive from her to dispel his worries.
Music is the theme of his transition from boy to man throughout the book. He’s still mostly a boy and ends up in some places and situations that may make the reader blush, but through it all, he finds himself and who he wants to be. Music guides this story as much as the many experiences, romances, and friendships he develops while becoming an adult in a place most people had never heard of until this damn war.
Will Ron rise to the many challenges and excel as the man he wants to be, despite the pitfalls, losses, and trials of war?
