With a nod to the past, [the author] revisits an alternative to the goal-driven realities of contemporary childhood. An odyssey of psychological self discovery and growth, this book suggests a vision of childhood that embraces risk and freedom - like the daring adventure on Huck's raft.-Dust jacket.
