Contents:
No escape from the unhappiness machine -- Now they would have the run home together -- Goddess of the moon -- Countryman--gets out here before it's too late -- All about the Benjamins -- Loyal citizen of Hamburger World -- Nineteenth-richest person in Washington state -- Periodic irritable crying -- Alki, 1851.
Summary: When two boys--John William Barry and Neil Countryman-- meet in 1972 at age sixteen, they're brought together by what they have in common: a fierce intensity and a love of the outdoors that takes them, together and often, into Washington's remote backcountry, where they must rely on their wits--and each other--to survive. Soon after graduating from college, Neil sets out on a path that will lead him toward a life as a devoted schoolteacher and family man. But John Willliam makes a radically different choice, dropping out of college and moving deep into the woods, convinced that it is the only way to live without hypocrisy. When John enlists Neil to help him disappear completely, Neil finds himself drawn into a web of secrets and often agonizing responsibility, deceit, and tragedy--one that will finally break open with a wholly unexpected, life-altering revelation.--From publisher description.
