SEEDS OF SALTON
A beautifully moving story of courage and love,
and the transforming power of forgiveness in the human heart.
A COMPLETED MANUSCRIPT: Sixteen-year-old Grady Kramer has so much hate for his alcoholic father that he comes within a hair trigger of killing him on a hunting excursion. Unwittingly Grady keeps a safe distance from his father—and from love—in order to protect his heart. He adopts an indestructible spirit in sync with the iron hard land of Montana…he works as a roughneck and catches rattlesnakes as a hobby, cheating death more than once. Only after reaching rock bottom does he find the courage to love again and face the demons of his past in order to find the true sense of peace that has eluded him his whole life.
Seeds of Salton runs 97,000 words and explores the deep, father-son bond as it follows Grady’s life; his trials, his ups and downs, hilarious moments juxtaposed to grippingly agonizing events, and opens a window into this fractured family through three decades (1970s to 2000).
