After university, Jack Paradise heads to Northern California, to the Redwood National Park and the Pacific Crest Trail, to build trails as a Corpsmember with the California Conservation Corps, a youth development program modeled after the Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930's. The Pure Life is the story of Jack's journey toward self-discovery as he learns the trade of natural resource conservation, experiences the challenges of working on a crew, and ultimately learns about friendship, responsibility and love. From dorm life to the hiking and camping in some of the most beautiful State and National Parks in the United States, the novel presents an insider's perspective on the youth conservation movement-the people who make it work, the lands it preserves and the lives that it changes forever.
