About the book:
 
The Bridge (Over Cedar Creek), constructed during a distant summer over a small Colorado stream by a boy and two curmudgeonly old men, serves as a metaphor for timeless life lessons learned and the beginning of the boys coming of age. Although fiction, the book is taken from real events and some real people. Others are composites taken solely from the imagination of the writer and distant memories. Written in the vernacular of the time, the characters come to life with the help of the authors vivid description. The reader can feel the cool breeze off the river, smell the scent of pine and see the brilliance of the sequined mountain night sky. The Bridge Over Cedar Creek will appeal to all readers except the most cynical.
 
 
 
The story of a youngster coming of age in the late “fifties”, a worn out three wheel Cushman baggage scooter that had long since been used up by Eastern Airlines, and a kind wise old man who reached out and changed the direction of the boy’s life. 

It opens after midnight in early June 1958 on a desolate Louisiana state highway, with a young passenger riding on a decrepit old Greyhound bus travelling alone to Colorado to spend the summer working on a cattle ranch.  

That seminal summer taught the boy that life is all about choice. It is not the people or events that make the difference, but how one thinks about them.
