Reaffirming the wonder and glory of individual rights, Robert Traver's Hungry Hollow tales recount the mischievous escapades of Danny and his "boys." Setting themselves up in a logging shack near the iron-mining town of Chippewa in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Danny and his cronies spend their time fishing and hunting, story-telling, moonshining, and rampaging through the Chippewa saloons and the local "hotel."

Traver has caught the genuine flavor of backwoods life. Beyond the diverse schemes and pranks, he masterfully portrays a group of men who live as they do because they choose to. Although written as fiction, Danny and the Boys is true Americana.
