THE RUNAWAYS by Glenn Balch


Email this review


To the foreign boy, a Latvian refugee of WW II, the rugged wilds of the mountains offered greater freedom than Mr. Johnson's ranch where his family had come to live. After facing up to the wilds, Jan then faces up to himself and returns to the ranch, leading his newly claimed wild horse. The highly respected author once again carves out a convincing picture of the region and of the unusual people who view Idaho as a strange new world. An interesting, tense struggle which will hit home with many boys.
