The world is not tame.
Ashley knows this truth deep in her bones, more at home with trees overhead than a roof. So when she goes hiking in the Smokies with her friends for a night of partying, the falling dark and creaking trees are second nature to her. But people are not tame either. And when Ashley catches her boyfriend with another girl, drunken rage sends her running into the night, stopped only by a nasty fall into a ravine. Morning brings the realization that she’s alone – and far off trail. Lost in undisturbed forest and with nothing but the clothes on her back, Ashley must figure out how to survive despite the red streak of infection creeping up her leg.
This is a powerful survival book. How far could you go to survive, how long would you last in the woods alone? Ashley has been an outdoors person her whole life so she is aware of many things that most would not know. She had the determination to stay alive and keep going. As you read the book you can’t help but wish her well and hope that she is found as each day dawns.
