Justin Cody's Race to Survival!

Justin Cody's Race to Survival!


Thirteen-year-old Justin Cody is failing two classes and is addicted to texting and playing video games. Forced to take a wilderness canoe trip in Canada with his Grandpa Henry, Justin is thrust into a race for survival when the two discover a top-secret drone developed by the U.S. military. Grandpa Henry is kidnapped and Justin—who knows nothing about canoeing and camping—must canoe alone to a distant lake that promises rescue.


RACE TO SURVIVAL is a high adventure tale and a wilderness skills book in one! 


Young readers will be entertained while they learn practical outdoor skills.


Some examples are: How to read a map and compass; make fire when the woods are wet with rain; rig a storm-proof camp; what to do when you’re caught in a lighting storm; tips to repel mosquitoes and black flies; important knots; essentials for a stay in the woods; emergency signals; wild foods that you can easily find and safely identify; what to do if you meet a bear or cow moose while you’re hiking—and much more!


Most of the events are based upon real-life experiences.  42,000 words, color. Recommended for ages 12 and up. Adults love it too!
