Synopsis

Lost Trail Nine Days Alone in the Wilderness by Donn Fendler, Lynn Plourde

Donn Fendler's harrowing story of being lost in the Maine wilderness when he was just twelve, was made famous by the perennial best-seller, Lost on a Mountain in Maine. In Lost Trail, more than 70 years after the event, Donn tells the story of survival and rescue from his own perspective. Lost Trail is a masterfully illustrated graphic novel that tells the story of a twelve year old boyscout from a New York City suburb who climbs Maine,s mile-high Mt. Katahdin and in a sudden storm is separated from his friends and family. What follows is a nine-day adventure, in which Donn, lost and alone in the Maine wilderness with bugs, bears, and only a few berries to eat, struggles for survival.

Reviews

Donn Fendler's story of survival is both terrifying and uplifting. It's wonderful to see it in a format that will introduce it to a whole new generation of readers. Here is a graphic novel about a real American superhero. -- Stephen King
