Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Twelve-year-old Sam Flynn would rather be anywhere than high up in the Rockies, trying to get up the courage to leap across a dangerous crevice. His fathers taunts arent helping, but Sam is used to them. His dad has been putting him down ever since Sam took up the guitar and started spending most of his free time with the band instead of coming along on hikes.

Sam finally overcomes his fear, jumps the crevice, and rejoins his father. But it isnt long before a careless move on the boys part injures his father and puts them both in danger. With help far away, father and son will have to depend on Sams skill and knowledge to get them down the mountain. Night is falling fast, and their food and water are in short supply. As if that werent bad enough, Sam has a bad feeling theyre not alone.

By turns suspenseful and poignant, Blind Mountain is a gripping story of survival. It will appeal to all readers who enjoy a blend of well-developed characters and nail-biting action.
