Abstract

Enclosed herein, in accordance with the requirements of the Department of English, College of Humanities and Sciences, and the VCU Graduate School, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia, regarding thesis submission, arrangement, and abstraction, is the novel entitled Skyline, in which one Jameson Price, of Fredericksburg, Virginia, aged 19, embarks upon a journey of self-exploration, financial gain, and physical labor, and experiences for the first time (or maybe second) the tumults of love. Upon his enrolment in the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in 1936, he is taken to Camp Saddleback, near New Puckett, Virginia, situated on the Blue Ridge Mountains to the east of the Shenandoah Valley. Here he assists in the creation of the Shenandoah National Park, and develops and explores relationships with fellow CCC boys and local residents—both positive and negative relationships, all with consequences that will affect all of their lives, forever.
