"Donald lay on the steaming ground. The murderous heat from the baked ground became more intense as the sun's piercing rays burned through the leaves of the greasewood tree where he lay. His head throbbed and he rubbed his forehead, trying to ease the pain that knifed above his eyes." On the Mexican side of the Rio Grande, across the river from Comanche Pass, Donald Woodson lies dying, too drunk and sick to help himself. A young Mexican girl finds him and helps him to her home. Having served as a marine during World War II, Donald is not a coward, but he is an alcoholic with nothing to live for except the hope that one day he will find the only person he has ever loved. Donald embraces hope when the Mexican girl and her grandfather give him back the will to live. Her love for him becomes as strong as his love for the Red Cross nurse he had once known. Is Donald in love with only a memory, and will he ever know the answer? Courage of a Small-Town Son portrays the struggles of a returning marine who learns that his sergeant from World War II is now the sheriff of Comanche Pass. Will Donald find the courage to show he's not a coward?
