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.
Gary Paulsen is one of the most honored writers of contemporary literature for young readers. He has written more than one hundred book for adults and young readers, and is the author of three Newberry Honor titles: Dogsong, Hatchet, and The Winter Room. He divides his time among Alaska, New Mexico, Minnesota, and the Pacific.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Incredible Story I've been looking for this book for the past 7 years. I read it in grade 5 as a novel study, but haven't been able to find it since, until now. I remember that this book was the first ever to get me to cry I got so involved in the plot, and loved the characters that much. Paulsen pulls you into this tragedy and lets you care for the characters as Tolkien does in The Hobbit, and The Lord Of The Rings. I still have only fond memories of this book. A must read book.
