The truck in the photo was actually my dad's. Growing up, there was always something that I loved about this old Ford—maybe it was the fact that this was the only truck I knew that had a name.
I do hope you have a chance to pick up For All You Have Left, a story near and dear to my heart, (when it releases in February) and experience more of Ol' Red and the storied love of Jorgen and Logan. Until then, and just in case you're wondering what ever happened to the real Ol' Red, I've included some photos below. It took a bit of a beating during the flood of 1993, which left the Berger, Mo. river bottoms pretty barren. But the memory of riding in the old truck has not been forgotten, and now it lives on in Jorgen and Logan's story!
