One day, Misty believes that David has a new girlfriend. Misty is crushed. She decides to head up into the mountains to camp out and “get away from it all” for a few days. An accident leaves Misty unconscious in a stream of icy-cold water. Misty is rescued by mountain man Gus, who carries her body to his cabin, where he revives her.

Their adventures over the next several months include wild animals, bad people, and good people. Learn how this mountain man and a runaway teenager bond and how their relationship brings them back to civilization. Discover the shocking and surprising ending!
