When Wolf's life becomes unbearable, he climbs the mountain without food or water not intending to return. He is only 18 and ill-prepared to help three strangers find their way on the mountain when they all become totally lost. What follows is a harrowing five days for them and the reader - I couldn't put it down!
Dear Daniel, a person has to live a little to appreciate a survival story. That's what I've always said, and I promised that when you were old enough, I'd tell you mine. It's no tale for a child, but you're not a child anymore. You're older now than I was when I got lost in the mountain wilderness. Five days in the freezing cold without food or water or shelter. You know that part, and you know that I was with three strangers and that not everyone survived. What happened up there changed my life, Danny. Hearing the story is going to change yours.
