After their parents leave their wilderness campsite to attend a relative's funeral, Doug finds he must overcome his fear of heights to rescue his brother from a ledge high above the valley floor. Sala captures the youthful voices of the brothers as the two conduct endless verbal skirmishes of sibling rivalry. Sala's steady, clipped reading helps pace the action and the emotional interactions. His brief pauses between scenes allow the listener to fully focus on the story line and help dramatize events. For heightened suspense, Sala uses a more intense and forceful voice. A pleasant reading of an adventure/survival tale sure to please young listeners. P.A.J. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 97]
