How much do you have to give up to find yourself?
When Pete first sets eyes the Man, he's convinced he's an ax murderer. But at the revival meeting, Pete discovers that the Man is actually a savior of souls, and Pete has been waiting all his life to be saved.
It's not something Pete's parents can understand. Certainly his best friend, Rufus, an avowed athiest, doesn't understand. But Pete knows he can't imagine life without the Man. So when the Man invites Pete to join him on his mission, how can Pete say no -- even if it means leaving behind everything he's ever loved?

"A FINE WHITE DUST is one of Rylant's older, lesser-known works, resurrected for this audio production. Thirteen-year-old Pete is "best friends with an atheist," and his parents are only "half-washed Christians," but he has a religious "itch" that needs scratchin'. It's the summer the Preacher Man arrives in his small town for a series of revival meetings. Keith Nobbs tells Pete's story with the exaggerated, enthusiastic lilt of a revivalist preacher as Pete finds a balm for his itch. Nobbs fills Pete's voice with awe as he attempts to make sense of "being saved" and comes to terms with the value of faith, friends, and family. N.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
