Overview

Imagination...or Something Real? Fourteen-year-old Joseph has no idea that his life is about to change in ways he couldn't have imagined. Things haven't always been easy for him; his mother is a controlling tyrant, and he is having some similar experiences with a teacher at school. He's learned to find an inner core of courage and resilience...and those qualities will be tested to the utmost when he embarks upon a wilderness adventure to prove that his beloved dog was killed by a creature that nobody else knows about. Joseph's family accuses him of having a wild imagination, but Joseph knows the truth...the spirit of his dog returned to tell him about the creature, and Joseph is determined both to prove that it is real, and to avenge the death of his dog. Follow Joseph on his trek into the compelling wilderness of Water Box Mountain, as he moves from the nostalgic atmosphere of rural life into an adventure full of natural beauty, survival skills, and excitement. A superb read for young adult and adult readers, Burial on Water Box Mountain is a modern fable that the whole family can enjoy.
