Larry Alderman arrived in Nashville from Mt. Airy, North Carolina, at the age of 19 in 2007 and parlayed his way with words into a career as one of Nashville’s most successful songwriters. Then he became a performer and in 2020 began his career as an author by publishing first a memoir, and then a novel, and now this, his third book in his first year in the business! His way with words clearly works in more than one genre. Alderman’s first novel portrayed his protagonist as a teen. This novel finds him at middle age, a veteran of World War I, revisiting a cave he haunted as a youth and finding himself traveling back in time and eventually joining the native peoples of a bygone era.
