Summary

Summary

From the recipient of the Newbery Honor award for his contemporary classic, Hatchet , comes another page-turning, heart-stopping adventure.

Carl and his cousin are lost and getting desperate when they find a shack hidden in the woods. It's their only chance for shelter--but who could be living way out here? Then they see the Foxman. As he welcomes the boys, he grabs his mask--too late to hide his hideously mutilated face. Carl accepts his welcome, but is eager to leave the next morning. His cousin, however, will come back. There's something about the Foxman he must know--about the tragedy that should have destroyed him, and the mystery of the wilderness that keeps him alive.
