Overview

When the paths of an old cowboy and two young trespassers---one black and one white---cross, many lives are changed forever. Beauregard Lee Kelso grew up in a time of racial division and rampant prejudice. Now, at an age that is way past retirement, he struggles with decisions of his past that won't allow him peace of mind. Kevin and Leonard are looking for some good fishing in one of the pasture watering holes when they cross onto Kelso's land. This book is the winner of a 2012 Readers' Favorite Honorable mention and a Gold (first place) Award in the 2013 Indie Next Generation Award for First Novel.
