A Week In The Woods by Andrew Clements


Original Title: A Week In The Woods

Mark didn't ask to move to New Hampshire. Or to go to a hick school like Hardy Elementary. And he certainly didn't request Mr. Maxwell as his teacher. Mr. Maxwell doesn't like rich kids, or slackers, or know-it-alls. And he's decided that Mark is all of those things. Now the whole school is headed out for a week of camping -- Hardy's famous Week in the Woods. At first it sounds dumb, but then Mark begins to open up to life in the country, and he decides it might be okay to learn something new. It might even be fun. But things go all wrong for Mark. The Week in the Woods is not what anyone planned. Especially not Mr. Maxwell. With his uncanny knack to reach right to the heart of kids, Andrew Clements asks -- and answers -- questions about first impressions, fairness, loyalty, and courage -- and exactly what it takes to spend a Week in the Woods.

After The Woods by Kim Savage


Original Title: After The Woods

"Statistically speaking, girls like me don't come back when guys like Donald Jessup take us." Julia knows she beat the odds. She escaped the kidnapper who hunted her in the woods for two terrifying nights that she can't fully remember. Now it's one year later, and a dead girl turns up in those same woods. The terrible memories resurface, leaving Julia in a stupor at awkward moments-in front of gorgeous Kellan MacDougall, for example. At least Julia's not alone. Her best friend, Liv, was in the woods, too. When Julia got caught, Liv ran away. Is Liv's guilt over leaving Julia the reason she's starving herself? Is hooking up with Shane Cuthbert, an addict with an explosive temper, Liv's way of punishing herself for not having Julia's back? As the devastating truth about Liv becomes clear, Julia realizes the one person she thinks she knows best-Liv-is the person she knows least of all. And that after the woods was just the beginning.

Bull Of The Woods by Gordon Gibson


Original Title: Bull Of The Woods

Logger, seaman, hotelier, politician, millionaire—Gordon Gibson was a tough man, a fast friend and a hellish enemy. Bull of the Woods is a tale of guts and raw courage from a Canadian Horatio Alger—a man big enough to tell his life story with the same brutal honesty with which he lived it. In a skeptical age when Canadian heroes are our of fashion, this is a memoir worth its salt and then some. When first published in 1980, it sold an incredible 50,000 copies and was widely reviewed nationally as one of the best books of the season. This new edition includes an introduction by Gordon Gibson's son, Globe & Mail columnist Gordon F. Gibson.
