Columbia, CA, and Ithaca, NY, Authors Pair Up to Publish "Between the Icebox and the Stairs"
Columbia, California October 02, 2013 Entertainment News(PRLEAP.COM) "Between the Icebox and the Stairs," a new book by Jo DeEds and James L. Reveal, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.
"Between the Icebox and the Stairs" is a coming of age story embedded in memories of a special time and place. In 1985 the authors challenged each other to record their recollections of Tuolumne County as they knew it in the 1950s, a project which eventually led to the creation of the book.
When Elizabeth Knuchen, the over-protected daughter of middle-aged parents, purchases her first horse, just two months after her fourteenth birthday, she escapes on horseback, headlong into a new-found freedom of self-reliance, belonging, and responsibility within a sub-culture of summer cowboys and seasoned packers guiding tourists, fishermen, and hunters into the Emigrant Basin Wilderness.
Jerrit Trover, the District Ranger's son, proud owner of real cowboy boots and a hat, is somewhat younger than Liz, and, initially, Liz is his nemesis. Their relationship gradually shifts to a companionable truce, compatibility, and eventually true friendship and a tentative exploration of something more, but is shattered by events beyond their control. What remains is their shared dream of special place in the mountains.
"Between the Icebox and the Stairs" is a 258-page hardcover with a retail price of $24.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-2953-2. It was published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
