Wild Jack
by John Christopher




Overview -
High adventure and intrigue await in this classic work of science fiction from critically acclaimed Tripods author John Christopher.

As punishment he is sent to a training island, where he is supposed to be re-taught how to be an unquestioning member of society, like everyone else in the cities.

But Clive and his friends manage to escape the island, making their way into the forbidden and unknown Outlands, where they are captured by the legendary Wild Jack and his troop of savages. At first, Clive is happy to be part of this wild group, but soon he realizes that things are not at all what they seem...
