Publisher's Summary

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.

Epic story of survival

If you like novels like the hatchet series you will love this book. the narrator really kept me hooked! I honestly would get lost in the story and see myself with ramon gabe and Johnny raven. I wish there were more books like this one!

No just no

Okay so first of all the audio was crackled and the whole book is just plain boring. I only got this because of school and it’s horrible.
