Title

Bless the Beasts & the Children

Description

The six teenage boys, ranging from rebels to wallflowers, are sent off to summer camp by self-obsessed parents who vaguely wish that the youths will be toughened up and civilized by a camp counselor named Wheaties. The camp’s sales line to parents is: Send us your kid and “We’ll send you a cowboy.” Swarthout’s stereotypic characters remain lively and fun as we watch them grow in confidence and purpose.
--Bill Broyles.
