Read it in one sitting. The book does a good job of showing just how easy it is to get lost in the BWCA and what rescuers go through (some of the time at great peril) to find those lost.

I'm not really an outdoor person so it was interesting to read how the lost men were able to use their natural resources to try to stay alive.

Dan Stephens, a 22-year-old Eagle Scout, was spending the summer of 1998 as a guide in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA). While leading a group of 8 boy scouts and their 2 leaders, Dan stepped into the woods alone to look for the next canoe portage and didn't return. In October of 2001, Jason Rasmussen, a third-year medical student, decided to go on a three-day hike alone in the BWCA. On the first day, he took a wrong turn on the unmarked 26 mile Pow Wow Trail and became hopelessly lost in an area of dense brush, bogs, and beaver ponds. Griffith skillfully interweaves the extraordinary stories of these two young men and those who searched for them. — Jennifer L., Ridgedale Library
