On a wilderness river in contemporary northern Canada, two fifteen-year-old boys, Jake and Peter, find themselves kayaking down ninety-five miles of whitewater rapids to summon help for a stranded and injured rafting party. The feat tests their physical and psychological stamina, as well as their friendship. As they pit themselves against time and wilderness dangers, they learn the value of cooperation, trust and determination. They also learn to trust their instincts and face adversity with courage. Above all, they redefine friendship and winning.

This book has it all—exciting outdoor adventure, depth of background on real outdoor sports and natural environments, and a positive portrayal of First Nations people. It reminds me of action Disney films; maybe a screenplay is next!
