From the author of Deliverance comes a tale about the journey a blind man takes in search of the son persumed to be dead. Frank Cahill, recently rendered blind by diabetes, travels to an Air Corps camp after the presumed death of his son in a plane crash. It is here that Frank comes to learn the truth of his son and eventually himself.
