In 2006 Megan Holcomb inherits the journals of her grandfather and great grandfather. Like looking back in time through a telescope, they take her to San Diego in World War II and then to Idaho and the Nez Perce War of 1877.  The words of the journals reveal how Isaac’s gun binds these times and places into a rich family legacy.
