From master storyteller Stephen King comes his classic #1 New York Times bestseller about four friends who encounter evil in the Maine woods. Twenty-five years ago, in their haunted hometown of Derry, Maine, four boys bravely stood together and saved a mentally challenged child from vicious local bullies. It was something that fundamentally changed them, in ways they could never begin to understand. These lifelong friends—now with separate lives and separate problems—make it a point to reunite every year for a hunting trip deep in the snowy Maine woods. This time, though, chaos erupts when a stranger suddenly stumbles into their camp, freezing, deliriously mumbling about lights in the sky. And all too quickly, the four companions are plunged into a horrifying struggle for survival with an otherworldly threat and the forces that oppose it...where their only chance of survival is locked into their shared past—and the extraordinary element that bonds them all...
Jesse Alvarez is tired of being the new kid every time his dad takes a job on another ranch. It doesn’t help that Cade Savage, the boss’s son, is a bully who has everything Jesse wants—money, a permanent home, horses, and most of all, a mother who lives with his family. Then Jesse meets Aaron Little Elk, who lives on the Wind River Reservation, steals scraps of yarn from the art room to make dreamcatchers, and never stops talking about his older brother Reuben. Despite that, they become friends, and when Aaron stops coming to school, Jesse worries—and learns of a secret Aaron has been harboring. As he tries to find out what’s happened to his friend, Jesse must unravel the mystery of Aaron’s dreamcatchers and their connection to the wild paint mustang only Aaron can handle. Part contemporary western, part ghost story, Dreamcatcher is ultimately a novel about friendship, the pain of letting go, and the importance of holding on to what remains behind.
