Boys want men in their lives as models of what to become, as guides along sometimes shaky paths, and as companions just for sharing. Boys need men in their lives to grow into capable, confident, nurturing men for a strong and secure society. Without realizing it, fifteen-year-old Paul Hansen found what he wanted and needed to climb from youth to manhood. In Turnaround Summer, he gives us an inside peek---with humor, sensitivity, and wisdom--of the magical results from men mentoring boys. Turnaround Summer calls all men to ensure a bright future for our world by becoming that guide to manhood our boys need.

Author Biography

Paul Hansen worked for thirty years as a building contractor in western Washington. Now retired, he and Linda, his wife of forty years, enjoy time with their three children, grandchildren, and extended family in the area. Gardening, traveling throughout North America, and working with their church community fill their days. But Paul makes sure he still has time to fish!
