Kidder Celebrates Release Of ‘Backtracking In Brown Water’

On Thursday, Rolland E. Kidder celebrated the release of his new book, “Backtracking In Brown Water,” with a book signing at the Robert H. Jackson Center in Jamestown. Following the signing, Greg Peterson interviewed Kidder, after which attendees could ask questions. According to Kidder, the common thread between this book and his previous work, “A Hometown Went To War,” is his preference for stories relating to common experiences. “I was just an average guy,” he said. “I prefer stories of the average guy’s experience.” The book can be purchased at
