Maniac Magee (Jeffrey) traveled to Two Mills from Hollidaysburg. The journey took him a year.
Everybody knows that Maniac Magee (then Jeffrey) started out in Hollidaysburg and wound up in Two Mills. The question is: What took him so long! And what did he do along the way!
Sure, two hundred miles is a long way, especially on foot, but the year that it took him to cover it was about fifty-one weeks more than he needed – figuring the way he could run, even then.
The legend doesn't have the answer. That's why this period is known as The Lost Year.
