Timothy's not the outdoorsy type-he has no desire to even wander around a park, let alone a wilderness preserve. Camping is bad enough, but when Timothy gets lost in the woods, his life becomes a nightmare. Stranded in the unforgiving forest far from civilization, armed with only a hatchet and a battered copy of Lord of the Flies, it will take a determination Timothy doesn't know he has to survive alone, and somehow make it home. Back in print in paperback, this novel is a compelling and exciting survival story from a rising star.
"A suspenseful and philosophical survival story. . . . A cut above." ( School Library Journal)
