Jeff Johnson tells short stories about living on the North Shore. The tales include Kevin Horn fighting a dog, Johnson’s interview with Mormon missionaries to get into BYU in Hawaii, canoe riding from Oahu’s North Shore to Mokuleia, diving and swimming at night, fights with night marchers and neighbors, and a big stormy day of closeouts.
