The genre may be action/adventure, and there may just be two children, but I’m not sure. I read this in elementary school, and I just don’t remember. I’d like to recommend it to my niece, though.

Thank you!


Anisha_book_lover Do you remember anything about the cover?

K | 21 comments It’s been about 20 or so years, so no, not really. I just remember that one scene and it stuck out quite vividly.

K | 21 comments I think it was somewhere post 1800s. I have a feeling it wasn’t dated too recently? I know that’s super unhelpful.

The main character was a boy, if my memory of the narrative is correct.

K | 21 comments It wasn’t Sunset of the Sabertooth, but that did remind me: when the boy and the other person/people were walking through the woods in the storm, the mountain lion he saw was eating a deer carcass or something similar.

Anisha_book_lover Was it similar to the "I Survived" series?

K | 21 comments Yes, it was similar to that series! Red Snow doesn’t sound familiar, but Survivors: Colorado 1886 does. I’m going to read it, and let y’all know!


Anisha_book_lover Okay great! Let us know :)
