This ALA Best Book for Young Adults tells the adventure-filled story of a boy sent to live with his grandmother, a cook in a camp for workers building a road through the Minnesota wilderness, in 1944. With his father fighting in the war and his mother so far away in Chicago, it's hard to be brave. Grandmother understands, but can she find a way to help him return home? Paulsen does an excellent job of portraying the lightning quick changes of a young child's emotions.
