(( THE DIGGING IS SLOW GOING. A CHAIN LINK FENCE, EVERY BOULDER, EVERY TREE ALL BURIED IN CURRENTS OF MUD BLOCK THE WAY TO POSSIBLE VICTIMS. "You dig a couple of inches and you hit a big boulder so now you have to dig a hole - to get a two foot hole, you have to dig a ten foot hole - to get the rocks out of the way, to get down where we want to go." WHERE THEY WANT TO GO ARE THE REMAINS OF ST. SOPHIA CAMP - A BUILDING THAT WAS ONCE TWO STORIES - NOW REDUCED TO ONE. INSIDE, MEMORIES OF SUMMERS PAST IN STARK CONTRAST TO THE DEVASTATION OF THE PAST FEW DAYS - PEOPLE SWEPT AWAY AND POSSIBLY BURIED. "They had two good hits. The dogs had two good hits on both those strainers so that would be where we'd want to focus our attention right now." CADAVER DOGS SNIFFED THE SAND AND WHATEVER RESCUERS FIND TO ZERO IN ON THE DEAD. "The dogs are incredible because you can walk over an area time and time again and then the dogs can smell a scent." FRIENDS AND FAMILY OF THE MISSING AND DEAD GATHERED HOPING TO FIND OUT THE FATE OF THEIR LOVED ONES. IT MIGHT BE A LONG WAIT. "Because of the force of the water and mud, there could be people miles away from here out of the actual area that's being searched on foot." THE AREA BEING SEARCHED STEP BY STEP IS FOUR AND HALF MILES LONG BY A HALF MILE WIDE. SAINT SOPHIA CAMP SITS AT THE TOP.

Charles wrote a few chapters and after some editing, Carolyn became co-author. When the book was finished, they had to get it published. After firing two agents and a publisher, the Bruce's decided they would have to go it alone, and Bruce and Bruce publishing was born. As if writing and publishing a book isn't enough, Charles drew the cover illustrations and 26 pictures inside the book, designed a website, and they both plan to help other writers get their works in print.
