What do boy scouts, farmers, soldiers, a Wyoming cowboy, pilots, newspaper boys, fairies, crows, life, death, and God have in common? They are all found in this collection of Tony Jordan’s stories. These stories are about ordinary people, and how the act of “doing the right thing” can create life-changing, extraordinary moments.
A former spymaster and counterspy for the CIA, Tony Jordan is a skilled and practiced observer of human nature. In the stories, he captures the essence of everyday people experiencing times of incredible lucidity, joy, tragedy, hope, and faith. His writing is succinct, yet graphic and expressive, whether he is describing the onset of a cold December rain, or the crow-sung song of release as an elder lies dying.
