How does Tom come to stop and rest in an old fort in a swampy forest?

One day when Tom had ventured to a far part of his neighborhood, he decides to take a shortcut back through a nearby swamp.
He has been making his way through the woods, through what would be a short cut, but it turned out not to be such a short cut. He stopped to rest and give himself a little breathing space.
