A long way from home, Sandy and Jack Casperin escape their abusive father and disappear into Crocodile Swamp, a remote wilderness in the Florida Keys. With nothing but their wits and limited supplies, the boys must learn to fend for themselves as they survive surrounded by snakes, massive crocodiles and a territorial hammerhead shark.
But it is only with the help of newfound friends - a local girl their age, and an old sailor (who might be a real pirate!) - that they can truly escape from their tragic past and make a new life for themselves.
From the Publisher:
In order to escape their abusive father, brothers Sandy and Jack run away to a remote area in the Florida Keys where they must fight for their survival by fighting off crocodiles and avoiding dangerous snakes, but a chance meeting with an old sailor and a local girl renews their hope for better days to come.In order to escape their abusive father, brothers Sandy and Jack run away to a remote area in the Florida Keys where they must fight for their survival by fighting off crocodiles and avoiding dangerous snakes, but a chance meeting with an old sailor and a local girl renews their hope for better days to come.
Author Bio
Jim Arnosky
Jim Arnosky is an author and illustrator of children's books who credits his artistic ability and training to his father--a patent draftsman. Most of Arnosky's books focus on the human relationship to the natural world, and many feature the grandfatherly character "Crinkleroot," who gently instructs readers in how to observe, appreciate, and respect nature. Realizing that many of his readers don't live in rural areas, Arnosky often writes about natural environments that thrive in or around urban areas. Arnosky has said that all of his work is autobiographical, in the sense that he cannot write about something he doesn't know from personal experience.
