Product Description

Maroo and her younger brother, Otak, are their family's only hope. Trapped on the Great Plain in blizzard conditions and with little food, the family has one chance of survival: for Maroo and Otak to reach the winter camp and get help. But the fastest trail to the camp is over the White Mountain, with its treacherous glaciers, steep climbs, and mountain spirits. No matter what happens, one of them must complete the journey--the rest of their family depends on it. So when Otak goes missing, Maroo is forced to make the most difficult of all decisions: to stay and search for her brother or to continue on to the camp in order to save the rest of her family.

When Maroo and her family become trapped on the Great Plain in blizzard conditions and with little food, they have only one chance of survival: for Maroo and her younger brother, Otak, to reach the winter camp and get help. The fastest trail to the camp is over the White Mountain, where there are treacherous glaciers, steep climbs, and mountain spirits.

But when Otak goes missing, Maroo is forced to make the most difficult of all decisions: to stay and search for her brother or to continue on to the camp in order to save the rest of her family. This modern classic offers readers a gripping tale of survival as well as a vivid portrait of prehistoric people.
