Hundred Waters: A Dangerous Journey into the Heart of a Man
A major new literary work by the author of the classic coming of age novel, In Different Times.
In 1967, eighteen year old, Morse-code operator, Eddie Carr, is assigned to an army listening post in Panama. What he finds there changes his life. When his closest friend, Harry Miles, goes missing deep in the jungle, Eddie follows. And soon Eddie's quest to save Harry turns into Eddie's battle against the powerful forces of the jungle to save his own life. The madness and poetry of Hundred Waters takes the reader on a journey into one man's encounter with the power of place and the uncertainties of self.
David Gregor’s unswerving vision of what it means to confront one's fears and destiny is once again demonstrated in Hundred Waters, the long awaited sequel to In Different Times.
In Hundred Waters, David Gregor employs a documentary form to piece together the continuing story of Eddie Carr as he explores his own identity on the gritty streets and in the threatening jungles of revolution-torn Panama in 1969.
Hundred Waters delivers its powerful punch on many levels. It is a story of youth and the often painful journey to manhood. At the same time it is a tale of love and friendship and the price we pay for each. Interwoven are searing and sometimes poignant inner revelations that paint a surreal glimpse into the kind of madness that can lead to self-realization.
Told with uncommon honesty, Hundred Waters is a real-life journey into the darkness that only fractured innocence knows. It is the story of a search for that place where each life changes.
