The second book in this thrilling adventure series from a real survival specialist.
Stranded in Alaska!
Beck Granger and his anthropologist uncle are on their way to visit Anakat Village, home to one of the native peoples of Alaska, when their tiny plane crashes in the Alaskan wilderness. With his uncle badly injured and the plane way off its original flight path, Beck realises he can't wait around for rescue. He needs to get help - and fast!
Together with his new friend, Tikaani, Beck sets off through bear country and up towards the mountains that block his way to civlilisation.
