Two boys and an old man survive a harrowing waterfall accident to find themselves stranded in the remote MacKenzie mountains of northern Canada. Fifteen-year olds Gabe and Raymond have the same birthday, but come from vastly different cultures. Gabe was raised by his grandparents in the Texas hill country, and Raymond is from a native village in the Northwest Territories. The old man is Johnny Raven, Raymond’s great uncle. Luckily for the boys, he’s a traditional Dihnay Indian who knows the old ways of winter survival. With winter fast approaching, and food running out, they must all work together to keep from becoming trapped in the howling wilds. Whether the group is eating porcupine or shooting the icy rapids, Johnny Heller’s voice draws maximum excitement. The author of Bearstone, and numerous other award-winning books, Will Hobbs is known for his thrill-a-minute wilderness adventure stories featuring teens. Download and start listening now!

There is only four people in the plane Raymond, Gabe, Johnny (Raymond's great uncle) and the pilot. The plane's engine stops, and they land in Virginia Falls. The pilot dies, and the three others must learn to live on their own until they are rescued... if they are rescued. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 2/1/2013

    " Describes survival on the Nahanni River, NWT. Gives some understanding of the Native perspective on school, the old ways vs the new ways. A good read for young adults. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 K. | 1/29/2013

    " The plot line of this story is almost exactly like Farley Mowat's "Lost in the Barrens" but a little more "modern" in terms of language and writing style. A little more dumbed down, perhaps? I prefer Mowat. All the same, a very fun book to read and it doesn't surprise me that Joel (9yob) loved it. "
