Summary
In this International Year of the Older Person (Towards a Society for All Ages) James Roy has written an exceptional book, devoid of sentimentality, about the friendship between a young boy in his first year of high school and an elderly man living alone in a nursing home. Danny is a quiet studious boy who has a severely turned eye which makes him the butt of jokes by the class bullies. An only child of a widower, he suffers alone, prejudged by his teachers. Captain Mack, an 84-year-old World War II veteran, thinks his nursing home is a POW camp and convinces the misfit Danny into helping him escape. Captain Mack is an adventure about heroes and unlikely friendships
