dc.description.abstract'Sad Soul Saloon' is a collection of stories about, Nick Muldoon, as he comes of age and seeks adventure during the early 1950s. Raised by his father and a group of social misfits at his father's saloon, Nick realizes in 'A Time to Fly' that the saloon is a refuge for people who seek respite from their difficult life journeys. Advised by the weary to embrace a life created for him by his father, Nick decides that he cannot appreciate a journey's end without having taken his own journey. Stepping from his nest in 'Ultimate Sacrifices, ' Nick's puts himself the middle of the Korean War. Fighting in the trenches of Pork Chop Hill, he experiences the honor and horror of war as he struggles to survive. Learning to transcend his fear, Nick embraces his duty and follows his orders at all cost. In 'A Search for Courage' Nick struggles with physical and emotional battle wounds as he journeys home. Severely burned and haunted by the images of war, he seeks the end of his journey, hoping that the people he loves most will recognize in him and embrace him. Sad Soul Saloon is Nick's cyclical trek away from an appreciation for his home, friends and family to a realization at his journey's end that there is only home, friends and family.en_US
