Of course, no one was allowed to lay on it except for the Warden or else they’d get in a lot of trouble. A log cabin was behind the trees and that’s where the Warden spent most of her time. Camp Green Lake was pocked with countless identical holes dug by boys to improve their character, or at least that’s the reigning philosophy at Camp Green Lake.

A, B, C, D, and E were for the campers and tent F was where the counselors slept. Stanley was assigned to D tent.

She found out that Stanley was absolutely innocent and he couldn't have stole Clyde Livingston's shoes. It turned out the papers belonged to the first Stanley Yelnats and consisted of stock certificates, deeds of trust, and promissory notes. He didn't talk much and he rarely smiled. The Warden caught them, shined her flashlight on them, and thanked them for their trouble. So much for the "improve your character by digging a hole everyday philosophy. Elya should've carried the pig up to the mountain that day because the two pigs weighed exactly the same. He walked and walked and walked when he came across a boat, half sticking part way in the air, and half buried in the dirt. Stanley now sensed that the Warden was looking for something. The story flashes back to another scene that also happened over a hundred and ten years ago. Before he came to camp, he was pretty much an orphan. Elya went to ask Myra's father for her hand in marriage, but so did Igor Barkov, the pig farmer. He drove the truck right into a hole.
