Synopsis:

When How I Spent My Summer Holidays was first published in 1981, one reviewer wrote: "If Who Has Seen the Wind told the story of a young boy's coming to terms with death, How I Spent My Summer Holidays tells of a young man's attempt to come to terms with his own sexuality and that of the world around him."

The twelve-year-old young man is Hugh, and in small-town Saskatchewan it is the hot summer of 1924. When Hugh and his friends dig a secret cave out on the Prairie, they find it occupied by a patient who has escaped from the mental hospital. Defying the adult world, the boys become involved with a former war hero and current rum-runner in sheltering and feeding the runaway. But when passions explode into murder, Hugh leaves his boyhood behind him forever.

From the Inside Flap: In his best-selling novel, How I Spent My Summer Holidays, W.O. Mitchell tells the story of 12-year-old Hugh's long summer in a small prairie town. When Hugh and his friends uncover a secret cave, they find it occupied by a patient who has recently escaped from the "mental" hospital. Defying the adult world, the boys become involved with a former war hero and current rum-runner, who offers shelter to the runaway. But when passions explode into murder, Hugh leaves his boyhood behind him forever.
