BOOK OF THE MONTH

The unforgettable hero of “Fourth of July Creek” is Pete Snow, a social worker charged with rescuing troubled children in the wilds of northern Montana. At work, he is preternaturally kind and helpful, even in the face of unbearable situations. In this rugged country, way off the grid, it seems there’s no horror he hasn’t seen, from “newly suicided fathers and their wreckage” to “the mother who calls your office wondering if you could take her child, God is telling her to kill him, you better hurry.”
