The Burns family vacation in the Appalachian Mountains starts wonderfully then quickly turns into a nightmare when one of the identical twins, Ryan, wanders off. While his brother tries desperately to connect with his twin, his parents exhaust all avenues to find Ryan. Meanwhile, Ryan lays unconscious far from camp and is found by Amos, a mountain man half crazed by the death of his own son. Amos takes Ryan home, further into the mountains, to his wife Lizzie Sue. The mountain people who save Ryan come to be more like captors rather than saviors. Amos is convinced that Ryan is his dead son Charlie, and Lizzie Sue likes having a boy around the house and her husband s spirit back. As months go by, Ryan s family attempts to deal with their loss and Ryan s likely death while Ryan tries to learn the ways of the mountain and his new family. After numerous scares and adventures, Ryan learns his way around the mountain and becomes determined to escape. Eagle Rock is a story with high adventure and of loving families torn apart by loss.
