by James E. Ryhal As he was growing up, James E. Ryhal loved hearing his fathers tales of life in small-town Western Pennsylvania. He especially enjoyed the ones involving his dads four best friends and his beloved Airedale, Bum. Now Ryhal has collected those stories in this memoir, Where the Water Is Cold. Jim (the eldest Ryhal) and his friends Charlie, Johnny, Rome, Will and, of course, Bum, experience the joys of fishing, sledding, sports, general hijinks and even, yes, romance in this heartwarming collection of (mostly legal) adventures. ABOUT THE AUTHOR James E. Ryhal is a United Methodist church pastor and former assistant prison chaplain.
