'Just Another Day" in paradise


Greg Quadlander remembers the boy inside in Just Another Day. He evokes the peaceful purity/danger of a wooded area that is in far Northwest Austin and now covered with houses.

Billed as a children's book, it will resonate with anyone who remembers what it was like to be a child in search of adventure--the kind that involves rattlesnakes and mountain lions!

The book brings to mind a more serene version of Gary Paulsen's book Hatchet. In this case the adventure ends in the safety of mother's arms.

He includes pencil drawings done by a number of his friends that will make you believe you are a kid again. Check the book out here.
