On his way out to his father's ranch in the Rockies, 15-year-old Peter Grayson's plane goes down, killing the pilot and leaving Peter stranded. The wilderness is harsh and unforgiving, and he can't count on anyone coming to rescue him before winter comes. Somehow, Peter stumbles upon the one human being living in that wilderness--an old hermit named Omar Pickett. Begrudginly, Omar takes Peter in, but when Peter begins to find out more about the old man's shadowy past, he wonders if he can stay with him until spring and rescue comes...

A great book for boys and a great family read-aloud.
