That Great Bend summer of 1961, when I was sixteen, the world was a Kansas prairie that went on forever. It was a time and a place when a boy of imagination seeking glory [and I was such a boy] could spin a summer of stolen freedoms into such high jinks, such high adventure that such a boy might be in danger of losing some vital part of himself when he cut the strings and moved on.
Over the years, I have revisited that magic summer in stops and starts, shared it with friends, then again with my children, then again with my grandchildren. Shook out a sleeve. Emptied some pocket of its boyhood treasures. Anecdotes. Patches. Now something in me wants to see that ragged coat whole against the sky, like some renegade kite caught in a whip of a Kansas wind.

Good book and I love that it is read by the author
Its the story of two brothers coming together so it is powerful, but there are also some very funny moments.
Because the author read the read the book, his passion come through.
