Books Info:

Great Falls free pdf One brother home from war. The other desperate to save him. A gripping journey together to the river's end. Shane has always worshiped his big brother, Jeremy. But three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan have taken their toll, and the easy-go-lucky brother Shane knew has been replaced by a surly drunk who carries his loaded 9mm with him everywhere and lives in the basement because he can t face life with his wife and two small children. When Jeremy shows up after Shane s football game and offers to take him to the family cabin overnight, Shane goes along both to get away from a humiliation on the field and to keep an eye on Jeremy, who s AWOL from his job at Quantico and seems to have a shorter fuse than ever. But as the camping trip turns into a days-long canoe trip down the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers, Shane realizes he s in way over his head and has no idea how to persuade Jeremy to return home and get the help he needs before it s too late. In a novel at once gripping and heartbreaking, Steve Watkins offers a stark exploration of the unseen injuries left by war."
