Wilds (Cemetery Dance Novella Series #1)
by Richard Laymon
About the Book:
Ned Champion had just been dumped by his girlfriend, Cora, but that's no reason to cancel his backpacking trip into the Lost River Wilderness Area.
He'll just go without her.
And he'll keep a journal of his adventures.
He's bound to have a fine time.
Alone in the wilds.
Completely on his own.
Absolutely free to do whatever he wishes.
Anything at all.
With nobody there to watch him or criticize him or hold him back -- or arrest him.
It'll just be Ned in the wilds.
And the Wilds in Ned.
