The World Made Straight
by Ron Rash
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312426607, Paperback)
Travis Shelton is seventeen the summer he wanders into the woods onto private property near his North Carolina home, discovers a grove of marijuana large enough to make him some serious money, and steps into the jaws of a bear trap. After hours on the forest floor, he's released from the trap by the shrewd and vicious farmer who set it--but he can no longer ignore the subtle evils that underlie the life of his small Appalachian community.
Before long, Travis has moved out of his parents' home to live with Leonard Shuler, a one-time schoolteacher who now deals a little pot to make ends meet. Travis becomes his student, of sorts, and the fate of these two outsiders becomes increasingly entwined as the community's violent past and corrupt present bear down on each of them from every direction.

After seventeen-year-old high school dropout Travis Shelton stumbles upon his neighbor's marijuana crop, he decides to steal a few plants and sell them to a former teacher turned local dealer. But Travis is caught by the owner of the crop and is left hospitalized and homeless. With nowhere else to turn, he goes to live the teacher and his part-time girlfriend in a rundown trailer.
