Some facts about Billy Dickens:
He once saw a biker swerve across the road in order to run over a snake.
Later, that motorcycle somehow ended up at the bottom of a canal.
Billy isn't the type to let things go.

Some facts about Billy's family:
They've lived in six different Florida towns because Billy's mom insists on getting a house near a bald eagle nest.
Billy's dad left when he was four and is a total mystery.
Billy has just found his dad's address — in Montana.

This summer, Billy will fly across the country, hike a mountain, float a river, dodge a grizzly bear, shoot down a spy drone, save a neighbor's cat, save an endangered panther, and then try to save his own father.
