The Beet Fields is a raw, funny, sensual, and mature new novel by award-winning and bestselling author Gary Paulsen. He gives us the story, 'as real,' he says, 'as I can write it,' of one boy's summer out in the world on his own for the first time. The questions, discussion topics, and author information that follow are intended to guide readers and spark discussion as they begin to analyze the larger emotional, sociological, and literary elements of this provocative new novel.
