Abstract or Summary
  • The thesis is the first third of a novel entitled Steelhead. The story takes place in and around a small southern Oregon town in the summer of 1967. The narrator, eighteen-year-old hot-rodding Emil Reese, discovers hippies swimming naked in the river near his house. The hippies, newly arrived from San Francisco, soon come to the attention of local gatekeepers calling themselves the Valley Betterment Association. When the Association learns that Emil has become "friendly" with the "hippie element," they approach him with a deal to "go behind enemy lines" and spy on the spreaders of dope, disease, and destruction. In return, they will give him letters of recommendation to Army Special Forces. Emil accepts the deal, but when local authorities come down hard on the hippies things escalate out of control and Emil is forced to reevaluate his motives and loyalties.
