As a teenager growing up during the Depression, Moss Trawnley doesn't have time to be a kid. In search of opportunity, Moss lies about his age and heads west to join Roosevelt's Civilian Conservation Corps. While working to protect Montana's wildlife, he goes to school, makes lifelong friends, falls in love, and finds what he almost lost in the crisis of the Great Depression: himself.

In this captivating work of fiction, Jeanette Ingold tells the story of a teen who risks everything to start a new life and, in the process, gains a future.
