While on a hiking trip, Donn became separated from his family and guide because of impatience. When dense fog shrouded Mount Katahdin, Maine's highest peak, Donn's problems were compounded. What follows is a true story of how a young boy survived on his own for nearly two weeks. Through the ordeal, he never gave up hope, believing Someone was watching over him. A truly inspiring story of faith, hope, and struggle set in a wilderness rarely traveled by humans.
Publisher Summary
A twelve-year-old describes his nine-day struggle to survive after being separated from his companions in the mountains of Maine in 1939.

Based on the true account of a boy's harrowing journey through the vast wilderness of the Katahdin Mountains, Lost on a Mountain in Maine is a gripping survival story for all ages.

Twelve-year-old Donn Fendler steps away from his Boy Scout troop for only a minute, but in the foggy mountains of Maine, a minute is all it takes. After hours of trying to find his way back, a nervous and tired Donn falls down an embankment, making it impossible for him to be found. One sleepless night goes by, followed by a second . . . and before Donn knows it, almost two weeks have passed, leaving him starving, scared, and delirious.

With rainstorms, black bears, and his fear of being lost forever, Donn's journey is a physically, mentally, and emotionally charged story told from the point of view of the boy who lived it.
