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
Summary
A deeply engrossing story about friendship, youth, and idealism from the bestselling author of Snow falling on cedars. When John William Barry and Neil Countryman met in 1972, the 16-year-old boys find they share a youthful idealism and a love of the outdoors. But after high school, their paths diverge. John William eventually drops out of society, and only Neil knows his whereabouts. He remains loyal to his oath of secrecy, until years later, when a shocking truth is revealed
