Publisher's Summary

Growing up in rural Mississippi just a couple of miles from the Mississippi River, white eight-year-old boy Buddy spends his summers playing in the woods behind his neighborhood. The day Buddy spots a wounded deer in those woods, he is wholly unprepared for a chance meeting with a stranger who will shape the course of his life.

Jake - an older African-American fisherman, ex-convict, former tent preacher - and Buddy form an unlikely bond that transcends age and race. Forged by their many conversations about life and faith, their friendship endures sorrows, celebrations, and transitions, ultimately revealing the power to heal them both.

Wonderful narration

This book was great to listen to. Very expressive narration. The story in itself was also good, but I think if I was reading this book I may have put it down after a while, but with the narrator’s skill and different voices, this was very enjoyable to listen to.
