Dead End in Norvelt

by Jack Gantos

Dead End in Norvelt Chapter 20 Summary

  • The Hells Angel that Jack confronted the previous night shows up at his house.
  • Uh oh. Jack's in for it now.
  • So much for judging on appearances. The fellow on the motorcycle is actually the farrier (horse shoe-er) who Jack's mom has hired to fix the horse War Chief's hooves.
  • He used to be a Hells Angel, but got tired of it. After he carefully takes care of War Chief's hooves, Jack invites him in to see his book igloo, which is a bit of a weird move. 
  • We don't blame the farrier for thinking Jack "has been out in the sun too long" (20.16).
