"Airman Mortensen is by turns comic, melancholy, and strangely jubilant. It is wonderful that Blake could follow-up Dances with Wolves with such a fine book."
-Jim Harrison

The year is 19656, and eighteen year old Airman Mortensen is in trouble. He has disobeyed an officer's orders, and now spends day after day cleaning latrines and awaiting a court martial on petty charges

Well written. An introspective journey of an 18 year old USAF Airman on a journey from teenager to adult. Humorous, sometimes funny encounters with the military system, differing cultures, girls, alcohol and love."
