Book cover

Back to the Woods by George V. (George Vere) Hobart is a delightful and humorous novel that takes readers on a thrilling adventure deep into the heart of the woods. Set in the early 1900s, this book presents a charming and vivid portrait of a bygone era.

The story follows the misadventures of Jerry Long, a city slicker who finds himself stranded in the unfamiliar and untamed woods of Connecticut. As he navigates through forests and encounters an array of eccentric characters, Jerry must learn to adapt to his surroundings or risk being forever lost in the wilderness.

Hobart's writing style is pitch-perfect, effortlessly blending hilarious situations with heartfelt moments. The author's wit and clever dialogue maintain a lively pace that keeps readers eagerly turning the pages. The humorous interactions between Jerry and the locals he encounters add a touch of levity to the story, providing many laugh-out-loud moments.

Jerry Long's transformation throughout the novel is remarkable, as he evolves from a naive city dweller to a resourceful survivor. His journey is not only filled with physical challenges but also with personal growth, making him a relatable and endearing protagonist.

Additionally, the supporting cast of quirky characters adds depth and color to the narrative. From the gruff yet wise old forest ranger to the enigmatic mountain man, each individual brings their own unique charm and contributes to the overall richness of the story.

While the book maintains an overall lighthearted tone, it subtly touches on themes of self-discovery, the power of nature, and the importance of human connection. These deeper layers serve to elevate the novel beyond a simple comedic adventure, giving readers something to reflect upon long after the final page is turned.

In sum, Back to the Woods is an absolute gem of a novel that encapsulates the spirit of adventure, humor, and personal growth. George V.
