Adventure and misadventure in Waterton Lakes National Park.

Vale and Ash get lost on an overnight hiking trip in the Rocky Mountains when they fall behind and take the wrong trail. Their PE class and their teachers don’t realize they’re missing until it’s almost dark.
All they have is what they packed on their backs and it’s starting to snow…
Should they build a fire? –no matches…now what? And was that the sound of a bear?
Will their friendship survive this? Will they survive this?!
