Holes Chapter 1 Summary
- It all starts with Part 1 (naturally), which is called "You Are Entering Camp Green Lake." So we guess we're entering Camp Green Lake.
- First we get a description of said camp: it's a "dry, flat wasteland" in Texas. Sounds… not awesome.
- We don't yet know what kind of camp Green Lake is, but there is a Warden, who "owns the shade." The campers are forbidden to lie in the Warden's hammock. Boo!
- We get a little more 4-1-1 on the camp: it's horribly dry and hot, and has a variety of dangerous animals: rattlesnakes, scorpions, and something called a "yellow-spotted lizard." A bite from this crazy-sounding lizard is a guarantee of "a slow and painful death." This place sounds like a great vacation spot, eh?
