Abstract: In Japan during World War II a group of boys who are evacuated to the country take over a village when the inhabitants flee a plague. The novel describes the way the boys administer the village-breaking into homes for food, burying the dead, caring for the sick-and what happens when the villagers return. By the author of The Silent Cry.
