Timberdoodle's review
 
Lost on a Mountain in Maine
In 1939 the entire nation anxiously watched as a parentís nightmare unfolded. Twelve-year-old Donn Fendler was hiking Maine's highest mountain, mile-high Katahdin, when he became separated from his family. As a dark storm moved in, Donn became even more disoriented. He emerged nine long days later, grossly malnourished, bare feet cut to shreds, and with scarcely a stitch of clothing intact, but alive. Lost Trail: Nine Days Alone in the Wilderness is the true story of that perilous journey, meticulously retold in a graphic novel.

Now Told in a Gripping Graphic Novel
Donnís gripping story was made famous 70 years ago by the best-selling book, Lost on a Mountain in Maine. Now, for the first time Donn tells the story of survival and rescue from his own perspective in this skillfully illustrated graphic novel, Lost Trail.

Survived 9 Days of Cold, Hunger, Bears, and More
Children will be enthralled to read the day-by-day account of how a 12-year-old Boy Scout from a New York City suburb survived cold, hunger, bears, a tumble into an icy river, and hallucinations. And they will cheer to read of how Donnís rescue was celebrated with a huge parade and an opportunity to meet the President of the United States. As a graphic novel, Lost Trail introduces younger and more reluctant readers to a true story that has captivated children for more than 70 years.

    Reviewer: Micci  
    This was our first attempt at a graphic novel. We read it aloud in short daily increments. My boys are in two different grades and are young. They thouroughly enjoyed this and looked forward to finding out what would happen next.
