Description

From international bestseller Stephen King, a classic story that engages our emotions on the most primal level, a fairy tale grimmer than Grimm but aglow with a girl’s indomitable spirit.

What if the woods were full of them? And of course they were, the woods were full of everything you didn’t like, everything you were afraid of and instinctively loathed, everything that tried to overwhelm you with nasty, no-brain panic.

The brochure promised a “moderate-to-difficult” six-mile hike on the Maine-New Hampshire branch of the Appalachian Trail, where nine-year-old Trisha McFarland was to spend Saturday with her older brother Pete and her recently divorced mother. When she wanders off to escape their constant bickering, then tries to catch up by attempting a shortcut through the woods, Trisha strays deeper into a wilderness full of peril and terror. Especially when night falls.

Trisha has only her wits for navigation, only her ingenuity as a defense against the elements, only her courage and faith to withstand her mounting fear. For solace she tunes her Walkman to broadcasts of Boston Red Sox games and the gritty performances of her hero, number thirty-six, relief pitcher Tom Gordon. And when her radio’s reception begins to fade, Trisha imagines that Tom Gordon is with her—her key to surviving an enemy known only by the slaughtered animals and mangled trees in its wake.

    This is my second time buying and reading this book. I got a lot I didn't get the first time through. Great book, but will make you think twice about hiking.

    A 9 year old wouldn't last one night in the forest, let alone over a week and hiking over 30 miles. The story is totally unrealistic. The writing is good, typical King, but I kept thinking "this is stupid!"

    I was given this book by my mother, who rarely lends me books that are boring. Well, let just thank my mom for this book. I read it a long time ago and loved it...all the little details, subtle nuances, and THE GIRL! By far one of my favorite books ever in my 36 years. Bravo, Mr. King!
