Coyote Jack tells three—of growing up with an abusive father, of going towar in Vietnam, and of returning to the scenes of the war years later- but they’rereally one story, of one life’s conflicts and resolutions—the universal story of how aboy became a man in war.This is a thoughtful, frank, honestly remembered book. I don’t know of any otherVietnam memoir that has got the gritty details of that grim war better, or has gonedeeper into the self that experienced it.”— Samuel Hynes, Professor of English, Emeritus,Princeton University, author of The Soldiers’ Tale
