During World War II, Clay Walker was a "code talker" for the Marine Corps. He had always wanted to be a warrior like his ancestors, but years before the young Navajo boy from the American Southwest had been told by his people that there were no more wars and no more warriors. He wants to prove them wrong. The attack on Pearl Harbor gives him the chance. But during bloody battles in the Pacific, his dream begins to fade. He see only pain, destruction, and death. Perhaps the old ones were right. * * * * Robert B. Fox spent 35 years working with young people as teacher, counselor, caseworker and parole officer.
