Summary
For as long as Moon can remember, he as lived in the forest in a shelter with his father. They keep to themselves, aside from occasional trips to the general store. When Moon's father dies, moon is quickly caught up in a world he doesn't know or understand; he's become property of the government he's been avoiding all his life. As the spirited and resourceful Moon encounters constables, jails, institutions, lawyers, true friends, and true enemies, he adapts his wilderness skills and learns to survive in the outside world, and even, perhaps, make his home there
Summary
After the death of his father, ten-year-old Moon leaves their forest shelter home and is sent to an Alabama institution, becoming entangled in the outside world he has never known and making good friends, a relentless enemy, and finally a new life
