Two children struggle to survive alone in the Adirondack mountains in this riveting story for “adventure lovers of all ages”(Columbus Dispatch).

“What I want to tell you is about Timothy and me, about that time in 1921, when we were lost for three months in the northern Adirondack Mountains, in the dead of winter...” 

Young Lizzy Allison and her brother Timothy are left frightened and alone when their father dies in the frozen Adirondacks. Battling the untamed perils of nature, withstanding the fierce and bitter elements, and confronting the deadly instincts of man, two desperate children embark on a heart-stopping journey of courage, strength, and endurance against all odds.
