The first historical novel capturing the turbulent Vietnam War era within the revolutionary setting of a Midwestern university...

 

 

 

RYAN STERLING is a nineteen-year-old college junior traversing a moral switchback in 1969 and 1970. 

He protests the Vietnam War while weighing patriotic implications. He loses passion for education while remaining on the Dean’s List. He defies authority while conforming to group pressure. He experiments with drugs while resisting dependency. He devours philosophy and psychology to find meaning in his raging confusion.

But conflict is the price of his search for understanding. Conflict carves rifts between Ryan, his peers and society. Conflict forces him to make game-changing choices.

Ryan’s odyssey includes a supporting cast of unforgettable characters. His quixotic lover shuns her self-indulgent past and makes the least expected confession. A calculating drug dealer squares off with Ryan’s nemesis, provoking a fatal consequence of intolerance. A tradition-minded classmate transforms into a revolutionary and leads dangerous confrontations with armed authorities.

Set in 1969 and 1970 at the University of Kansas, one of the nation's most radical colleges at that time, this astonishing story weaves together emotional with historical truth. The novel shares an uncensored perspective of America's jolting revolution against mainstream values . . . a captivating narrative on the Vietnam War era as university students lived through this momentous epoch in their lives.
