Description

Carl and his 15-year-old cousin stumble into a clearing to find the small tarpaper shack with the smoke coming out of the chimney. It may belong to a trapper. Or it could belong to a woodsy-a man who live in the woods because he can't be with other people. But with night advancing quickly, the boys know they must find shelter from the coming storm-and fast. And that's how they first meet the Foxman, a strange recluse with a face hideously deformed by a wartime injury. While Carl is just as glad to leave the shack after the storm, his cousin feels strangely drawn to the tragic figure of the Foxman. They share emotional ties even Carl doesn't understand, let alone his parents. For the next few months this troubled boy returns to the shack, searching for some bit of knowledge that will explain the tragedy and healing that keep the Foxman alive-and that he can apply to his own painful past.

Professional reviews

"The narrator, now grown, remembers a boyhood winter spent in the silent, northern forests when he ran a trap line with his cousin. One day the boys are caught in a howling storm and are saved by a hermit who hides his face behind a mask. The narrator is repelled by this old trapper, "The Foxman," and, at the same time, is drawn to seek him out. Johnny Heller reads this gripping, coming-of-age tale quietly and with great restraint. His intense tone matches the inner voice of the narrator. Paulsen has written a story charged with emotion and filled with powerful descriptive passages and drama. Heller's performance conveys all of that, as well as the pain, loss and love of two solitary souls. L.R.S. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
