Wendy Orr’s RAVEN’S MOUNTAIN � Love That Book – Books for the Young
This reminded me so much of Hatchet by Gary Paulsen, that exciting survival story that so many have loved. A family has a weekend together hiking and camping in the mountains. It is supposed to be a time of bonding and healing but a freak accident has the young girl Raven trying to get help. She can speak to her sister through a crack in the rocks but has to leave her there. She has no compass, no food or water and there are bears around.
Very very exciting. Chris
