A harrowing, rambunctious memoir/account about a senior year at Dartmouth College at a time - 1969-1970 - when the Vietnam War rolled a hand grenade into the Animal House. Because of the reinstitution of the draft lottery on December 1, 1969, the class of 1970 at Dartmouth - and elsewhere across America - was the first to graduate with a diploma and a draft number. This is their coming-of-age story - told through the eyes of a senior hockey captain - about his band of fraternity brothers whose road trip culture collided with the spectre of getting killed… providing a year of living dangerously in the midst of a memorable last hurrah.
