An adventure begins!

When Arlo Finch arrives in the tiny town of Pine Mountain, Colorado, he has no idea how his life will change. Joining the Rangers — a troop of teenage scouts with supernatural skills — Arlo must learn to master the basics, including impossible knaughts, shimmering snaplights, and booming thunderclaps.

With the help of new friends Indra and Wu, Arlo must face the exotic creatures and wild magic of the mysterious Long Woods, a parallel realm of wonder and danger.

Through perilous adventures and close calls, Arlo is awakened to his unique destiny. The obstacles he encounters will test the foundations of the Ranger's Vow: loyalty, bravery, kindness, and truth.
