In a Mississippi farming town at the height of World War II, Dan Timms waits to be drafted into the military, while dealing with his father's recent suicide, the grieving guilt of his mother, the racism of the region that threatens his co-worker L. C., and his friend, Marty Stark, returned from the battlefield to guard the German prisoners who work the local farms. 20,000 first printing.

In 1943, Dan Timms awaits being drafted away from the memory of his father's recent suicide, the guilt and sorrow of his mother, and the protection of his enterprising uncle, for whom he and a young black man called L.C. drive a "rolling store" through the Delta, its plantations now worked by German soldiers whose fighting days are over. As they would seem to be for Dan's friend Marty Stark, returned mysteriously from the front and reassigned to guard men he had been trained to kill. But for L.C., a danger more immediate than the one looming overseas is the society into which he was born.
