Rocke Wilson was born and raised in the small sawmill town of Riggins, Idaho, nestled deep in the Salmon River canyon. Hunting, fishing, and motorcycles were his passion while growing up. After high school he went to Reno, Nevada to attend flying school. Following a two-year stint in the Army he returned to Reno to continue flight training and got a job in a casino. He ended up spending much of ten years there at the craps, 21, and roulette tables before moving back to Riggins with his wife to raise their family of three boys. Shortly after moving back to Riggins the sawmill burned and was not rebuilt throwing the town into an economic slump. But Rocke was determined to stay, and he worked numerous jobs including mechanics, underground mining, carpentering, and even a newspaper delivery route. He spent the last seven years of his working life in the city water and sewer department until a back injury forced his early retirement. Since then he has been active in preserving the rich history of his area and community via photography and writing.

There are problems to work out along the way, and a freak accident almost lays this budding romance to waste before it begins, but Dannee and Terry will find a way.
