Mary Cote's 'The Red of Flowing Blood I See' chronicles a visceral, soul-wrenching journey of one young man in a world he didn't make, but one he must grasp and keep, at any cost.
At nineteen, Chuck Franklin, foot and heart-sore, has gone to Canada rather than to Vietnam per his draft notice. His reasons echo another's, yet he keeps his peace and tries to blend in, to live and work among new friends. Unconsciously, his presence fills the lack of a beloved son of Canada fighting in the jungles half a world away.
Truths are held in abeyance, as Chuck finds himself caring more and more for those around him. After one tragedy follows another, Chuck makes a decision that could land him in prison. His choice opens his eyes to the price of belief, even as the eyes of a loved one, left in ignorance and despair, close forever.
This is a must-read, for those who are still trying to understand the whys of the VietNam war, and can't find the answer.
