From the Publisher

Brenda Ballard was raised in the Granite Falls area. While helping her eldest stepson do research for a cultural fair project on his late grandfather, Fred Ballard, Brenda became intrigued with the adventures and life of this young teenager in the 1930's. A chance meeting with Fred's childhood buddy, Rudy, proved these stories true. It took ten years and her imagination to piece it all together. The result is this children's series entitled The Boy From Granite Falls, a nickname Fred was given while serving overseas in WWII. Brenda is married to Fred's youngest son, Brad. They were married at Kelcema Lake, Silverton, Washington, which is featured on the cover. This is significant as Fred and his stepfather helped build the trail while serving in the CCC. Silverton is located between the old mill pond that Fred grew up on and Monte Cristo; it is near the Big Four Resort and the Ice Caves.
