I've Seen Dry is a historical novel that reaches back from 1981 small town life in eastern Montana, to an event in 1918 as remembered by two elderly nursing home residents. Something happened along the North Dakota - Montana border in 1918. A man died then. The crisis left something that would influence the way of life in the rural community sixty years later.
There are things we don’t talk about. The subjects change and knowledge grows, so that there are things once hidden that we speak about openly today. We may forget just how hidden from view, just how difficult to address, some topics once were. THE SHALLOWS OF JABBOK re-visits an earlier time with some rural folks trying to live authentic lives. Even when it meant not talking about certain things because those folks did not talk about them.
