Synopsis

River Season is an excellent first novel—it’s moving, crisply written, and the characters are convincing and appealing. -- Larry McMurtry --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Hailed as "An excellent first novel" by Pulitzer Prize- winning author Larry McMurtry, River Season tells the story of a young boy's magical summer in a small Texas town in the 1960s.

When thirteen-year-old Jim discovers Sam, a stranger, in his favorite fishing spot one day, he has no idea his life is about to change. The two of them quickly become friends, and as the summer unfolds Jim learns there is more to Sam than he ever imagined-and that life's most valuable lessons are often the most painful.

A lifelong Texan, Jim Black was born in Center, Texas in 1953 and today lives in Wichita Falls with his wife Lorrie. To learn more about the author and his writings, visit www.jimblackbooks.com
