In the 1960s ago Tom Wolfe and John McPhee ushered in the era of New Journalism with reportage that had the color and drama of fiction. In Lost Arrow, a younger writer builds on their achievements and pushes the genre in a new direction. Rather than examining his subjects from the outside, Scott C. Davis reports from within – he really is a mountain climber, for example, and has worked as a carpenter for many years. Davis is engaged – a position that yields special insight and also allows him to turn the reportorial lens back on a skeptical society. Some of the stories in Lost Arrow are gripping, others are sweet. Several first appeared in the Christian Science Monitor’s Home Forum – the last literary general store left from a simpler America where “reminds-me-when” stories provided insightful, sometimes withering, commentary.
