  • Christopher Award - "Better to light one candle than to curse the darkness"
  • Society of School Librarians International Best Book
Historical fiction at its best! From the author of The Big Burn comes this captivating story of a boy striving to become a man amidst the hard times of the 1930s Great Depression. Teenager Moss Trawnley is on his own and desperate when he joins Franklin Roosevelt's Civilian Conservation Corps. The CCC means a job at a Montana camp and money for his family. Self-esteem and self-reliance. Friends and being a leader. A crash course in living with nature. And it means facing hard times and building something good. Includes reader's guide.
Double whammy. Good book. Good boy book. . .It's a coming-of-age novel worthy of your time. --Treasure Chest for Tweens
This is a must read book!! If you like realistic fiction then you should definitely read this novel. --East Meadow Public Library YA Book Log, review by a middle school student
An excellent piece of historical fiction which helps people today to appreciate events that took place in the past. Written with humor, pathos, and a keen understanding of the times. -Through the Looking Glass Book Reviews
Great for boys. --YA Books Central
Felt like a well-done film where one can't help but root for the hero. Although intended for young adults, anyone will find Hitch a great read. --Historical Novel Society

From the Back Cover:

Moss Trawnley is only seventeen years old, but he has his future all planned out. He's been accepted to technical school, and if he watches every penny he earns at the airfield, he just might be able to afford tuition. But it only takes two words from his boss to shatter his dreams: You're fired.
Suddenly homeless and jobless, Moss is desperate for a way to support himself. But during the Great Depression, finding a job is next to impossible, and with so many people out of work, it seems as if the whole country is waiting in a bread line. With no other options, Moss signs up for a six-month hitch with President Roosevelt's Civilian Conservation Corps--at least it will give him something to eat and a roof over his head. But what starts out as a meal ticket turns into the adventure of a lifetime.

  • A CHRISTOPHER AWARD WINNER
  • A SOCIETY OF SCHOOL LIBRARIANS INTERNATIONAL BEST BOOK
"Ingold's passion for her subject, crisp narrative and lively dialogue carry this fine story of a young man finding a way to make a difference in a difficult time."--Kirkus Reviews"Readers will be readily caught up in the camp's trials and successes through to the dramatic ending...A wholly appealing exploration of the historic period."--The Bulletin
