Descrizione

Nick has always loved camping, but his cousins, Andy and Devin, aren't outdoors guys--they're jocks.  Nick isn't even sure why his cousins wanted to go on the camping trip.  They don't listen to his warnings about campfires and bears, and they make fun of everything Nick does.  When Devin finds himself in real danger, can Nick save him in time?

Informazioni sull'autore

Who is Jake Maddox? Athlete, author, world-traveler – or all three? He has surfed in Hawaii, scuba-dived in Australia, and climbed the mountains of Peru and Alaska. His books range from the most popular team sports to outdoor activities to survival adventures and even to auto racing. His exploits have inspired numerous writers to walk in his footsteps – literally! Each of his stories is stamped with teamwork, fair play, and a strong sense of self-worth and discipline. Always a team-player, Maddox realizes it takes more than one man (or woman) to create a book good enough for a young reader. He hopes the lessons learned on the court, field, or arena and the champion sprinter pace of his books can motivate kids to become better athletes and lifelong readers.

Wild Hike - Jake Maddox

CHAPTER 1

THE ROCKY TRAIL

Hey bear! shouted Nick. He clapped loudly as he walked along the hiking trail. The rocky trail was lined on both sides by tall green trees. Hey bear! Nick yelled again.

Do you really have to do that? asked his cousin Devin. Nick stopped and looked back. His cousins Andy and Devin were behind him on the trail. They both had large packs strapped to their backs.

I don’t have to. But it’s a good idea to make a lot of noise while we’re hiking, Nick said. I’m doing it so we don’t surprise any grizzly bears. Did you know that when people have trouble with grizzlies, it’s usually because they sneak up on the bears by accident?

Nick smiled. He loved talking about the outdoors. The bears only attack when they’re scared, Nick said. If they know we’re here, they’ll stay away.

Are you for real? said Devin. I thought this was supposed to be a vacation. You sound just like one of my teachers. Devin looked at Andy and laughed.

The smile disappeared from Nick’s face. He put his head down and started walking again. He led his cousins farther down the trail.

The grass was still covered with dew. There was a chill in the morning air. Nick knew that even though it was July, the temperature was only in the forties.

As he walked, Nick looked around him. He looked at the blue skies, at the colorful wildflowers, and at a stream that flowed down a nearby cliff. Giant mountains stood in the distance.

What is that jingling sound? asked Andy.

Nick stopped. Those are my bear bells, he explained. He held up his foot. The bells were silver and round, about as large as a quarter. They’re tied to my shoe laces.
