This is a hardback book. The nail biters, thumb suckers and teeth grinders at the Box Canyon Boys Camp were called the Bedwetters. They were the castaway offspring of parents who were busy traveling, being divorced, remarrying, and garnering fortunes. they were rejects...
Until Cooton pulled them together and led them on that fantastic mission to strike one final blow in the desperated battle to save themselves.
This haunting novel is eloquent testimony that all lost children do not come from ghettoes. Cruel in its clarity and touching in its portrayal of the inner and outer realities of adolescence. Bless the Beasts and Children is a profoundly moving book.
