More Description

"The Printz Award-winning classic gets a new look.
"The Watson family moves to Stoneygate, an old coal-mining town, to care for Kit's recently widowed grandfather. When Kit meets John Askew, another boy whose family has both worked and died in the mines, Askew invites Kit to join him in playing a game called Death. As Kit's grandfather tells him stories of the mine's past and the history of the Watson family, Askew takes Kit into the mines, where the boys look to find the childhood ghosts of their long-gone ancestors. Written in haunting, lyrical prose, "Kit's Wilderness "examines the bonds of family from one generation to the next, and explores how meaning and beauty can be revealed from the depths of darkness.
