Children Ages 8+ • 2.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Narrator Jacob McNatt creates a youthful voice for Donn Fendler, a 12-year-old boy who becomes separated from his group while hiking in Maine and must rely on his Scouting skills to survive for two weeks. This true story takes place in 1939 on Mt. Katahdin. McNatt's narration reflects Fendler's optimism as he turns to his faith to continue on despite all the obstacles and dangers standing in his way, while folks desperately search for him. Narrator James Fouhey interjects context throughout the story, along with tidbits gathered from interviews with Fendler. His deep voice contrasts nicely with McNatt's. Listeners who enjoy survival stories and historical pieces will be eager to hear this Maine classic. M.D. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2021]
