Book Details

It’s 1968 in Archer City, Texas. Gasoline is thirty-four cents per gallon; a postage stamp costs a nickel; and people still sleep with their doors unlocked at night. Fifteen-year-old Jim and his buddies, Charles and Gary, are charting new territory—high school—and finding the transition challenging to say the least. Meanwhile, on the outskirts of town, a mystery is brewing: Cattle are turning up dead amid reports of strange lights in the night sky and claims of a bizarre “creature” roaming the countryside. Come join the boys as they cope with all that’s going on in this funny and endearing sequel to River Season.
