The Boy Scout is a fantasy novel (book one of the trilogy Dragons Son) about a thirteen year old boy, Jimmy, who just happens to be an avid Boy Scout in the late nineteen-fifties. Much of Jimmy’s Boy Scout training saves his life and the lives of his companions as they embark on a quest to free Jimmy’s grandmother who has been kidnapped. Much to Jimmy’s astonishment his grandmother, Atthea, a grandparent Jimmy had no idea he had, turns out to be of a race he didn’t even know existed.
Jimmy and his friend Kirk stumble down a concealed shaft in a dark and spooky cave during a Boy Scout camping expedition and tumble into a down right nasty situation in an alien world, a world of dragons and elves and any number of good and evil creatures. Jimmy and Kirk are rescued from their first encounter with “nasties” by two winged warrior elf girls, Annatheia and Roannee. Extreme tensions develop as the four teenagers struggle with their relationships and learn slowly who and what they really are and the latent powers they possess.
The story takes the teenagers through intense self-discovery, wrenching fledgling romantic situations, and heart pounding life and death adventures in a landscape of unknown pleasures and perils.
