School is out for the summer. Twelve year old Morgan just found out he and his family will be returning to his favorite place, the Sangre de Christo Mountains of New Mexico. He's very excited, but it would be especially cool if his dad were to relent and allow his best friend Jacob to join them. His dad never has time to hang out with just him... but with Jacob along it would be a real blast.
This is an exciting survival adventure of twelve year old Morgan, who travels with his family to the mountains of New Mexico during summer vacation. After having a conflict with his dad, Morgan wanders away from camp alone, only to later find himself unable to return. A wild fire has blocked his only way back. He is forced to run for his life, taking him farther away from his family. As he struggles to escape the flames, the smoke makes it difficult to breath or see where he is going. He realizes there is little hope of making it safely down the mountain. Suddenly he feels himself flailing through the air and ends up flat on his back in the center of a shallow creek bed. He tries to get up but realizes he is hurt and can no longer run. There must be something he can do to save himself...and Morgan is not about to give up. He must survive so he can make things right with his dad.
