Grand View

David Ralph Johnson

This is David's first novel. He took time off from photography in 2018 and wrote the novel in partnership with editor and friend Russel Blixt. David's wife Theresa provided reality checks along the way, making the story human.

In this nostalgic story, David Ralph Johnson relives a summer spent in 1970, at seventeen years old, washing dishes for room and board at a resort in the Northwoods of Minnesota. Resort life engages David with a cast of characters that make his first time away from home truly memorable. A human cannonball, a talking dog, joint thievery, and summer love all make for a time rich with adventure, humor, warmth, and friendship. Hopefully you will find this a fun lighthearted read.

Available for purchase on Amazon Kindle.
