The year is 1961. America has a new president, named John F. Kennedy, and a new era the newspapers are calling The Dawn of Camelot. But for ten-year-old Paul Brett, dealing with an abusive father and immigrant gangs roaming his slum neighborhood of China Slough, America is only a small, dead-end place he is struggling to survive.
That is, until the night a stranger comes out of the darkness and initiates a journey--an unforgettable odyssey--beyond his wildest imagination.
From the mean streets of childhood, into the deadlier, coming-of-age wars for survival in a careless, unforgiving world, American Warrior follows one young man's breathtaking and mesmerizing journey into manhood, and hell's darkest reaches.
