Daniel and Seth are backwoods boys, fascinated and challenged by the swamps, rivers, and mountains of their remote northern valley and by the wildlife they see there. These evocative survival stories describe three trips the boys make, alone and together: a snowshoe trek, a swamp exploration, and an October night alone in the woods.

David Budbill writes simply and beautifully about the exhilaration of striking out into the wilderness. He captures the sense of mystery, awe, and sometimes fear that nature evokes in each of us.
