Mark Chelmsley is the son of very wealthy parents who spend alot of time away from home. When they move to a small country town in New England, Mark has trouble fitting in at his new school, and has special trouble dealing with the science teacher, Mr. Maxwell. It isn't until Mark discovers a love of nature that he starts to feel at home in his new town, but will a shared love of camping be enough to unite Mark and Mr. Maxwell when things go wrong at the school's annual camping trip? This entertaining book shows how people can misunderstand each other and includes several great descriptions of camping in the wild. This story could serve as a great introduction to more intense survival stories like Gary Paulsen's Hatchet or the work of Jack London.
