Summary

In the third installment of this choose-your-own-trail adventure series, young pioneers must find—and survive—a wild river crossing! It’s 1850 and you are on the third leg of your journey across the American frontier. You've crossed prairies, rivers, and mountains and have faced stampeding buffalo. But your journey is not yet over. After travelling for more than two months with your family, covered wagon, and oxen, you're only halfway to Oregon City. There are still months of travel ahead of you— if you can survive the dangerous ford of the wild Snake River at Three Island Crossing! Every decision counts! Which path will you choose? With twenty-two possible endings, choose wrong and you'll never find Snake River. Choose right and blaze a trail that gets you closer to Oregon City!

    From the author of The Outsiders: This novel about two brothers in a tough world “packs a punch that will leave readers of any age reeling” (School Library Journal).  An ALA Best Book for Young AdultsA School Library Journal Best Book of the Year   Rusty-James wants to be just like his big brother Motorcycle Boy—tough enough to be respected by everyone in the neighborhood. But Motorcycle Boy is also smart, so smart that Rusty-James relies on him to bail him out of trouble. The brothers are inseparable, and Motorcycle Boy will always be there to watch his back, so there's nothing to worry about, right? Or so Rusty-James believes, until his world falls apart and Motorcycle Boy isn't there to pick up the pieces.   An edgy, emotional portrait of a troubled kid trying to navigate the chaotic world around him, Rumble Fish was made into a film by Francis Ford Coppola and has become a modern classic praised by School Library Journal as “stylistically superb” and beloved by multiple generations of readers.   “Hinton knows how to plunge us right into [Rusty-James’s] dead-end mentality—his inability to verbalize much of anything, to come to grips with his anger about his alcoholic father and the mother who deserted him, even his distance from his own feelings.”—Kirkus Reviews

    “I loved this book. Told by a narrator you won’t soon forget, it is filled with myth and legend, danger and bravery. Hoodoo is pure folk magic.”—Keith Donohue, New York Times bestselling author   Twelve-year-old Hoodoo Hatcher was born into a family with a rich tradition of practicing folk magic: hoodoo, as most people call it. But even though his name is Hoodoo, he can’t seem to cast a simple spell. Then a mysterious man called the Stranger comes to town, and Hoodoo starts dreaming of the dead rising from their graves. Even worse, he soon learns the Stranger is looking for a boy. Not just any boy. A boy named Hoodoo. The entire town is at risk from the Stranger’s black magic, and only Hoodoo can defeat him. He’ll just need to learn how to conjure first. Set amid the swamps, red soil, and sweltering heat of small-town Alabama in the 1930s, Hoodoo is infused with a big dose of creepiness leavened with gentle humor.   “What a splendid novel. Reader, be prepared to have your foundations shaken: this is a world that is deeper, more wondrous, more spiritually charged than you may have ever imagined.”—Gary D. Schmidt, two-time Newbery Honor medalist and author of The Wednesday Wars   “The authenticity of Hoodoo’s voice and this distinctive mashup of genres make Smith one to watch. Seekers of the scary and ‘something different’ need look no further.”—Kirkus Reviews “The chilling supernatural Southern Gothic plot action is enhanced by atmospheric description of rural life in Depression-era Alabama . . . Readers will particularly enjoy Hoodoo’s authentic and engaging narrative voice.”—School Library Journa
