Dan appr?hende l'ennuyeuse sortie scolaire dans une ferme historique ?loign?e. Pas tant ? cause du fumier que du fait que le fermier ?l?ve des porcs. Les porcs s'appellent aussi des cochons et le nom de famille de Dan est Cauchon. D?j? en butte aux moqueries, Dan se cuirasse contre l'?preuve anticip?e. Mais il n'a pas pr?vu l'apparition d'un inqui?tant fermier tatou?, la disparition myst?rieuse de son enseignante ou les menaces de mort contre ses camarades. Et encore moins qu'il sera seul ? pouvoir les sauver.

Dan is not sure he'll survive the boring field trip to a remote heritage farm. How could a place with no running water, telephone or electricity be anything but dull? To top it all off, the farmer knows nothing about farming and is angry about having to conduct the tour. When Dan sneaks back to the school bus, he discovers the driver and teacher have been bound and gagged. Who is this "farmer" anyway, and will Dan be able to find help in time?
