Children • 3 hrs • Unabridged • © 1977

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. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 96]
