Summary
Three kids rely on wilderness survival skills after their plane crashes en route to Devon and Nadia’s mother’s environmental assessment site. When the trio discovers that the man accompanying them, a seemingly harmless government pencil pusher dispatched to oversee the project, is in fact in cahoots with a major logging company, they suddenly find their lives in even greater danger. The once-friendly bureaucrat, full of helpful tidbits on building a cozy campsite and the essentials of a trusty first-aid kit, turns into a menacing, greedy criminal capable of murder. Although the improbability of this sudden and extreme change weakens the plot, the book distinguishes itself by interweaving interesting step-by-step instructions for surviving, such as how to tend to a broken arm, cross a strong current, and signal a plane. These tips are delivered with minimal clunkiness. The crisp art creates distinct, full-bodied characters. This title is perfect for reluctant readers and adventure aficionados.
