Weirdo, The

by Theodore Taylor  |  Grades: 9-12  |  Lexile 770  |  Reading Level 4.6

Chip Clewt, known simply as "the weirdo,' lives like a hermit in the Powhatan Swamp, a National Wildlife Refuge that is at the center of a heated controversy between local hunters and environmentalists. A hunting ban on the Powhatan is about to expire. The environmentalists want to protect the wildlife; the hunters are oiling their guns. Then someone completely unexpected comes forward to spearhead the conservation effort--the weirdo.
