Timberdoodle's Review
Lost on a Mountain in Maine
In 1939 the entire nation anxiously watched as a parent’s 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
Donn’s 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 Donn’s 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.

Lost Trail

I got this for my 6 year old son, who is already reading independently, he was able to read this on his own. He liked it. I love the graphic novel format. It's great for transitioning young readers to longer materials without them becoming overwhelmed.
