Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For Doug's brother, Gordie, the ridge with its spectacular view is a magical, special place, but for Doug, it's The Fear Place. Two years ago, Doug hiked to the ridge during his family's annual camping trip, and he vowed never again to cross the narrow ledge from which the earth dropped away six hundred feet to the canyon below.

But now the boys' parents have been called from their vacation by a family emergency, and Doug and Gordie are alone in the wilderness. After one of their seemingly endless fights, Gordie has stomped away from their campsite. When Girdle doesn't return, Doug fears the worst, particularly when he hears reports that a cougar has been sighted nearby. Doug knows he has to go after his brother, and he knows where he will find him. What he can't imagine is the surprising source of the courage to overcome his fears.

About the Author

Phyllis Reynolds NaylorPhyllis Reynolds Naylor got the idea for The Fear Place when her grown sons, Jeff and Michael, set out for Longs Peak during a family vacation in the Rockies. Fearful of heights herself, she spent an uneasy day waiting for their return. When they later described the climb, including a section called the Upper Narrows, Mrs. Naylor began to spin out a plot in her mind and spent several years thinking about and researching it.

Phyllis Reynolds Naylor is the author of more than eighty books, including the Newbery Medal winner Shiloh and her popular Alice series. She lives in Bethesda, Maryland.
