Baxter stood there, looking up. How did he get down here? How was he supposed to get back up there? Will Ma know he is down here? Will Pa look for him when he comes home from nut-hunting? What about his siblings? Where were Jackson, Marcus, Tammy, Randy, Maxi, Vera, or Stanley?
Baxter realized for the first time in his short life that the world was bigger than he was used to seeing. The ground was bigger, the tree trunk was longer, and the way home was impossible!
