Weeks ago, when he begged his parents to let him take his horse Red with him to camp, maybe somehow Jeff knew he would be wanting to run away. All he could remember now was the way the camp coach had been hounding him, making him feel stupid. All his life people had thought of him as somewhat of a slow learner. He has to make the journey home alone, to prove something to everyone.
Jeff knows that he will have to face dangers on his horseback journey through the Adirondack Mountains. But he never dreams that the very earth will heave and crack open before he and Red can reach their destination.
