|Plot Summary of Wildside|
|"Carlie Newell is your average slightly-overweight teenage boy, thinking about his future. He wants to please his parents - easy for Mom, almost impossible for Dad. His friends are getting ready to go off to college, thinking about getting married, better jobs, all average teenager stuff.
Oh, Charlie has inherited an inter-dimensional doorway that leads to an uninhabited Earth. Charlie has big plans for the summer. It involves Passenger Pigeons and mining for gold in the untouched Rocky Mountains. There is only one problem. The government has found out about Charlie's doorway."
Topaz, Resident Scholar
