WATSONVILLE ó War stories tend to focus too much on the misery of the situation, said author Don Young, and that is a problem.

Personal narratives become lost in the backdrop of describing one horror after the other.

Through his new book, "The Ascending Star," Young wants to give a human touch to his characters who witness the horrors of war.

The World War II veteran and Aptos resident will be signing copies of his latest book on Saturday at Crossroads Books, 1935 Main St. in Watsonville from 4-5 p.m.

The book, which consists of three novellas, grew from Young's own personal events during the war.
