Publishers Description Roaring River State Park and The Great Passion Play Theater are real places visited by thousands each year. Andy Savage is an imaginary character who faces many of the problems encountered by real thirteen-year-old boys in today's world. Can he learn to solve these problems in the beautiful Ozark Mountains, with the help of his Christian grandparents, friends, and an awesome trout? "Andy Savage of Roaring River is a fast-paced story about a young boy's Ozark adventure, spiritual growth, and new appreciation of himself and others. This book will keep the interest of any young teen, especially one who loves fishing. I loved this book." -Ed Wilson, retired teacher, church leader, and deacon. John Calvin Knox's forty years as a teacher, elementary school principal, and supervisor of intern teachers from Oklahoma State University built in him a love and appreciation for young people. His graduate degree in guidance and counseling and his Christian upbringing furthered his ability to relate to children and teachers. John Calvin grew up in the Ozarks. After serving in the Air Force and graduating from John Brown University in Arkansas, he taught in Missouri and Tulsa, Oklahoma. Some of the fondest memories of growing up for his daughters, Shelley, Jennifer, and Holly were the many family camping and fishing trips to Roaring River State Park in Missouri. John Calvin and Leslie, also a teacher, are newly retired and are looking forward to having more time to continue the Roaring River tradition with their daughters, sons-in-law and grandchildren.

I read the book while ridding through the Ozark Mountains. This is a book that I would recoment to all parents who are looking for positive reading experiences for their children. We need more books that encourage and offer hope to our children. The story is good and well written.

I'm a middle school student in Coweta, Ok. I just finished reading ANDY SAVAGE OF ROARING RIVER, for the second time. I really liked this book. I hope there is another Andy Savage book coming out soon. My Grandad is going to take me to Roaring River next spring!-Skylar McClain
