A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "This is an anthology of short stories and poetry that can only be read piecemeal due to its size. Nonetheless it is an impressive range of literature dealing with virtues we all strive to model: responsibility, hard work, faith, courage, honesty, loyalty, self-discipline, and persistence."
