Story Summary

"The facts about John Huff, aged twelve, are simple and soon stated. He could pathfind more trails than any Choctaw or Cherokee since time began...He sat easy. He was not a bully...He was, in fact, the only god living in the whole town of Green Town, Illinois..." One of the most beautifully written stories about the friendship of two young boys you will ever read. Rich in language as only Ray Bradbury can write.
