Back in eighth grade, I remember reading an awesome story in our English book. It was about a boy who goes on some kind of quest. You think it's a tribal thing, until he begins to see skyscrapers and the George Washington Bridge and stuff. Then you realize he is living as a savage after World War 3. Also in that book was Leiningen vs. The Ants, another awesome story. Does anybody know what the story was? I appreciate it.

It also sounds like Waters of Bablyon. I think that's the title of the story.

That's it. I remember that story, too, and it's awesome. As is Leiningen vs. the Ants.



This will get added at the end of each post you make, below an horizontal line. This should preferably be kept to a small enough size.

Yeah, that's totally it! I can't believe how I can get answers here to some obscure stuff. Thanks.

I read Strawberries and Other Secrets in Grade 7. The short story you are referring to is part of that collection, as is "Pigs Is Pigs," "The Sniper," and "Lather and Nothing Else."
