Excerpt from the front dj flap: The novel is an engrossing story of two young men, both raised on a farm, whose lives become intertwined int eh big city. Ultimately one, a reporter, tries to track down the other, a pig-sticker in a stockyard and part-time boxer, who disappears when he is accused of murder. Manfred recreates the vigorous, teeming, incident-filled life of a time and place that should not be lost--growing up on a midwestern farm, arriving wide-eyed in the big city, seeing rural and urban living conditions, a newspaper's operation, a stockyards routine, labor problems, family life, sexual mores, the academic scene, the tenderness of young love, and the seeds of change that would create an unrecognizable new world.
