Cary Griffith about the “Lost in the Wild”
In the wilderness, one false step can make the difference between a delightful respite and a brush with death.
Jason Rasmussen, a third-year medical student who loved the forest's solitude, walked alone into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness on a crisp fall day. After a two-day trek into a remote area of the woods, he stepped away from his campsite and made a series of seemingly trivial mistakes that left him separated from his supplies, wet, and lost, as cold darkness fell.
Enduring days without food or shelter, Jason faced the full harsh force of wilderness, the place he had sought out for tranquil refuge from city life.Lost in the Wild takes readers with Jason as he enters realms of pain, fear, and courage, suffering dizzying confusion and unending frustration as he overcomes seemingly insurmountable hurdles in a race to survive.
