Product description

Product Description

In the summer of 1971, Dallas Green and Lonnie McKay made a spur-of-the-moment decision to leave their hot, dusty farming town and head south to Mexico in Lonnie's 1965 Chevy. They told each other they were going down there to find a friend who had disappeared a few years before, but the truth was that what they were really looking for was an escape from work, the draft, the war, and the prospect of having to finally grow up. Scott R. Larson has drawn on his own memories of growing up in the San Joaquin Valley to tell this story of two teenagers on the brink of manhood and their once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read! 2 February 2015

I loved this book! Once I started I couldn't put it down. Scott Larson has penned finely drawn characters naively banging around in Mexico with a far away goal of rescuing their friend from Central American at the time the US was funding gorilla wars there. It all felt so real I seemed to be right there with them experiencing the consequences of ill-considered decisions and saving graces. What an adventurous way to come-of-age in a place in time that no longer exists. Truly a great read! I am looking forward to Larson's next book!
5.0 out of 5 stars Wild and Crazy "American" Guys 5 February 2015
By Marilyn S Creagan - Published on

What a wild and crazy adventure! The 2 San Joaquin Valley boys were a bit exasperating with their repeatedly poor judgement, but it did ring pretty true for their age. And, I guess, where would the fun be without it. The story kept me thoroughly engaged and entertained; even made me want to research the political goings on of the time. The characters were all very well developed; I especially loved Antonio, the star and the hero. Looking forward to the sequel. Oh, and I love the title.
5.0 out of 5 stars "Dukes of Hazzard" meets "Missing": a humorous yet poignant coming of age story 23 July 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Two childhood friends from Bakersfield California travel through Mexico in search of their missing friend, vanished in the turmoil of Guatemala in the 1970s. They are joined by a streetwise Mexican boy trying to find the mother who abandoned him.This first novel has everything going for it: a rollicking buddy adventure, a sweet cross cultural romance, an awakening to the changing political landscape of Latin America in the 70's. A page turner that also leaves you thinking and wanting a sequel.

This is a great book. Scott Larson does a magnificent job of taking his readers on a southern trip with the three young heroes. I enjoyed reading this book and thoroughly recommend that others enjoy these adventures.
1.0 out of 5 stars It felt like a very immature drunk teenager wrote the book 6 December 2014

I could not finish this book. After about 3 or 4 chapters I was done. It felt like a very immature drunk teenager wrote the book. Sorry, didn't like at all.
