     A smartphone addicted thirteen-year-old is stranded alone in the wilderness after his outdoor expert grandpa is kidnapped! With no guide, no skills, and mysterious strangers hot on his tail, he struggles to navigate the wild, racing to meet a rescue plane… and hopefully his grandpa. Mixes a fictional wilderness survival tale with practical outdoor skills everyone should know--basically a "how-to-camp and canoe book" disguised as an adventure novel. My hope is that the survival story will keep their interest while the "how to stuff" will teach them right. Adults love it too!


     A riveting high-adventure tale AND a wilderness "skills" book in one!  Learn important outdoor skills: make fire in the rain, storm-proof your camp, tie useful knots, find wild foods that are safe to eat, read a map and compass, understand GPS, use a satellite phone, survive an encouter with a bear or moose, be safe in a lightning storm and more!
