The summer of 1979 in Arizona.
The Arizona State Flag.
11 year old, Richard Lewis Famous Jr. The Third believes that the fact that his last name is “Famous” is more than a coincidence. Born and raised a New Yorker (Upper West Side) he wants to be famous and is not afraid to show it since he is cocky and somewhat arrogant.Theonly thing he wants more than being famous is the pretty Native American girl who lives next door to his Aunt and Uncles house.
10 year old, Sacagawea is a pretty Native American girl who has lived in Arizona her entire life. She may or may not have a crush on Clark or Richard. She has her own pet rabbit and has an amazing knowledge of the local wildlife.
10 year old, Clark is an American boy who has a huge crush on 10 year old Sacagawea, rivaling Richard’s chances. Clark believes he also will become famous but his desire is not as big as Richards. He has a good knowledge of the local wildlife.
Eleven-year-old, Richard Lewis Famous Jr. The Third has a great desire to make himself world famous. How can he with all that is happening during his summer vacation? Skinny dipping, good luck, fate, kissing a girl he's in love with, exposing a neighborhood boy on TV and more all play a part in his plans!
In the end, Richard Lewis Famous Jr. The Third got part of his wish. Sacagawea and him fell in love and ran into the sunset…NOT. Although they did kiss and fall in love in their fort in the nearby hills, he did not get famous but in his head he thinks “At least I got the girl”.
