From the book jacket:
In Weeds and other Stories you will find bullies and mystical coyotes, environmental warriors, loners, clowns, and the best of friends; and, of course, some fresh takes on teen relationships. With an ear tuned to teen dialogue, and an eye for precise emotional detail, Jacqueline Pearce cuts a wide arc within teen culture. The prevasive thread that runs through the collection is that wilderness touches everyone, and how it touches people is the catalyst for story.
