Lost on a Mountain

From the Series Stranded! Testing the Limits of Survival

In May 2011, Brian Dickinson climbed to the top of Mt. Everest, the tallest mountain on Earth. “Enjoy this moment,” he said to himself. Brian’s joy would not last long, however. The powerful rays of the sun soon burned his eyes. He would have to get down the icy mountain all alone and unable to see. Could he get to the bottom of the summit before his oxygen ran out or a snow avalanche buried him alive? Lost on a Mountain is a heart-stopping collection of true stories that dramatically describe what it’s like to be lost and forced to survive in the mountains. Captivating, first-person accounts of survivors include a trio that faced unbearably high temperatures when they got lost in the mountains of Death Valley National Park, and a group of people stranded in the Andes after a plane crash. The book also includes general information about the world’s mountains and the incredible plants and animals that inhabit them. Large color photos, maps, and fact boxes enrich the exciting survival tales. Written in a narrative format, this book is sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats.
