What does it mean to be a decent man? To love well, with fidelity and constancy? These are the lessons that Jakeas father, a wildlife biologist, tries to impart to his son, often on fishing trips to their beloved Furnace Creek. Bound up in the laws of Einsteinas theories, these lessons will ultimately influence Jakeas own career as an astronomer. Out on the creek, both father and son conquer their greatest challenges: marital infidelity, professional setbacks, and Jakeas long term, passionate obsession with his childhood crush.
