Paired together on a three-day survival camping trip, Harvey and Rocky are about as different from each other as possible. Harvey is slight, tidy, a worrier. Though younger, Rocky is bigger, messy, and carefree. They get off to a predictably bad start when Harvey tries to get Rocky to pick up his dirty clothes. "Im camping with my mother!" Rocky explodes. "Im camping with my mother!"
But gradually, the task of camping in the woods on their own begins to absorb them. Before they are fully aware of what has happened, each is helping the other when conditions demand cooperation, and in the process, each boy discovers qualities about the other that he can accept and admire.
Richly illustrated with details of camping and woodlore, this is a down-to-earth, funny book about two boys who learned that getting along with one another was not so great a problem as coping with the adversities of nature.
