Crashing through the desert shrubbery, Dillon raced for his life as watchful eyes peered down from above. The secret of his fate remained unknown until his older sister, Suzette, made a three-day hike into the Superstition Wilderness with her good friends, Timber and Doug, and four high school students.
The challenges the teenagers were dealing with seemed minor in comparison to what they faced in the wilderness. Nate had been frustrated with his mom, her boyfriends, and a threatening drug supplier. Marcie lived with an alcoholic dad and her abused mom. Jonah had to fend for himself as his parents lived the life of the rich and self-indulgent while Markus risked an athletic scholarship to protect a teammate.
Attacked and threatened by wildlife and cataclysmic events out of their control, they had to work together to survive. Forced to shift paths, each of the hikers faced adversity and unexpected challenges to make it back to civilization.
