Miles Foster is a newly minted teacher who dreams of getting a teaching job in the highly respected and financially stable Portland, Oregon school system where everything is available, and where he and his wife call home. But the only opening for his talents is in a remote lumber mill town in central Oregon, two hundred miles away.
It is a poor school with forty students, and is controlled by a jealous superintendent and school board who tolerate no thinking outside the box and who conspire to destroy his teaching career.
Miles must find a way to educate students who have been passed along regardless of what they learned, and defeat the damaging control of the school board and superintendent without losing his marriage or his job, or both.

Author Bio per his Website:

Jim Misko, award-winning author, teacher, journalist, and real estate entrepreneur, has written ten books. 

Born and raised in Ord, Nebraska, his mother taught him, at age five, to swim in the North Loup River. He came to respect and love the river. As a youth, he wandered its shores. Summers were for hunting frogs, turtles, and swimming; winter was for trapping, casting paw prints in the snow and tanning rabbit hides.

Jim graduated from Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon and at one time or another made his living as an oil field roughneck, mink rancher, forest service lookout, YMCA Youth Secretary, truck driver, logger, lumber mill hand, journalist, teacher and real estate broker.

Entranced by the tales of Mountain Men, he quickly became skilled in travel by canoe and horseback. At the end of a summer’s work in Montana, he canoed 350 miles down the Columbia River to return to college. He and his family raised horses and canoed the waters of rivers and lakes in the Northwest and Alaska. 

Jim and his wife moved to Alaska in 1974 where they reside in the summer and California in the winter.

    I have to remember to remain calm about a few things, but one of those is definitely city traffic and bad drivers! Haha.
