I found a reference to this book in American Atheist Magazine. Luce had also written pieces for the magazine that impressed me with the clarity and good sense of his explanations. So I purchased the Kindle version of the book and received a great surprise. "Chasing Davis" seemed a mysterious title, but Mr. Luce referred to a time of his life when he was young and living in Davis, California.
I identified with the same span of time in my life, also in a country region, in my case a farm in Maryland. I was hooked because I understood the freedom and the questing of an intelligent teen-aged boy.
In a way, I believe that any committed atheist has a head start in living and applying morality because we are not beholden to a god or a dogma. Nevertheless, we must have guidelines. Where the religious have their "revealed truths," we must find logical truths. We demand evidence and try to follow the patterns of learning that are vital to science.
I believe that James Luce has thought long and deeply about these matters and offers an excellent guide.

I gave this tome 4 stars for the 4 pages of highlights and notes I had taken. The author draws wonderful and thought provoking analogies in describing life's journey. Knock on wood and the bag lady were refreshing thoughts.
