    " I really liked this historical fictious account of the Boy Scout troop that had to endure all the geological events that occurred to them while on a campout in November of 1975. An extremely descriptive story of doing what Boy Scouts do. I would recommend this book to all readers in all age group. "

    " A group of scouts go on a camping trip on a Hawaiian island with an active volcano. They endure a massive earthquake when the volcano erupts. Survival story as well as story about relationships with difficult people. Good for adolescent boys. Geological interest too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marie | 1/1/2014

    " A Lone Star award winner, this small book is a great read. It is a fictionalized account of a Boy Scout troop in Hawaii in the 1970s on a campout. They experience a lot more than a campout in the form of a natural disaster. Written in the 1st person, it can be gently humorous and swiftly intense, and makes good commentary on the bonds that happen when disaster strikes. "

About the Narrator

Robert Ramirez came to audiobook narration fresh from his MFA in classical theater. Initially answering a casting call for a narrator who spoke Spanish, Robert has used his Mexican-American background to imbue authentic flavor and dialogue in audio titles. His success with six young adult novels by Gary Soto has gotten our attention, including Taking Sides and Buried Onion. His powerful command of language and rich voice reflect his interest in dialects. In his recent performance of Beast by Donna Jo Napoli, a modern fable of “Beauty and the Beast” set in Persia, Robert jumped at the chance to add Farsi and Arabic to his repertoire. We hope to hear Robert in different audiobook venues in coming months.
