Gemini Summer Summary
In the quiet of Hog's Hollow, each member of the River family pursues a dream. Danny, the younger River boy, dreams of having a dog. Then in the spring of 1965 tragedy befalls the Rivers, but the tragedy does finally bring a dog into Danny's life. And not just any old dog. Danny comes to believe that the mixed-breed stray embodies the spirit of someone he dearly loves. He won't allow anyone to separate him from the dog, not even after it bites the neighborhood bully and the police are sent to take it away. Together Danny and his dog run off, heading toward Cape Caneveral, where the Gemini missions blast off from, and where dreams come true.
