The simplest things can bring the greatest rewards. Twelve-year-old Billy loves to fish. He always treasures the times he can sit by the water and wait for the fish to bite. But Billy longs for someone to fish with. His dad is busy with work, and his few friends don't share his passion. However, Billy learns there is one person whose love for fishing equals his own—the mysterious W.R.R., whose trophies hang on the supermarket wall and whose brightly colored, handmade lures line the cases. Billy wants to be just like him, but he doesn't even know who W.R.R. is. When a big fishing tournament is held, Billy is convinced W.R.R. will win. Billy can't participate in the tournament himself because he doesn't have a partner, but he's anxious to watch everyone else, especially if he can see someone catch the great fish he battled earlier and maybe meet the elusive W.R.R. There's a big surprise in store for Billy and an ending you'll not soon forget! Hawgeye tells the story of a young boy's passion for fishing, but it's much more. Chris W. Weston's captivating tale will leave readers reflecting on simple joys, love, and their own family dynamics. A story children, parents, and grandparents will cherish, Hawgeye will bring a tear and a smile.
