This inspiring tale about respecting and preserving animal and plant life, perhaps even more relevant in today's climate than when it was first published, is finally back in print. Fourteen-year-old Joey spends his childhood visiting a beautiful back-country pond in Virginia. His humorous and heart-warming adventures in and around the pond, with the faithful dog Charley at his side, broaden his understanding of his place in the world and awaken in him a protective instinct towards all nature. In an era of climate-change debate and animal rights movements,The Ponddelivers an important message to readers of all ages, at the same time never failing to delight.
