Product Description

In 1939, 12-year-old Donn Fendler climbed to the top of Mt. Katahdin just minutes ahead of his dad and brothers. Tired of waiting for them to join him, Donn decided to climb down to camp by himself. But a heavy fog suddenly rolled in, and he didn't count on falling down an embankment, hiding him from sight. After a wrong turn, Donn became hopelessly lost in the wilderness for nine days. An incredible true story of courage, perseverance, and faith! Recommend for ages 9 and up.

Publisher's Description

Based on the true account of a boy's harrowing journey through the vast wilderness of the Katahdin Mountains, Lost on a Mountain in Maine is a gripping survival story for all ages.

Twelve-year-old Donn Fendler steps away from his Boy Scout troop for only a minute, but in the foggy mountains of Maine, a minute is all it takes. After hours of trying to find his way back, a nervous and tired Donn falls down an embankment, making it impossible for him to be found. One sleepless night goes by, followed by a second . . . and before Donn knows it, almost two weeks have passed, leaving him starving, scared, and delirious.

With rainstorms, black bears, and his fear of being lost forever, Donn's journey is a physically, mentally, and emotionally charged story told from the point of view of the boy who lived it.
