Synopsis: Greg confronts his own fears and assumes a leadership role when his father is bitten by a rattlesnake during a white-water rafting trip

From School Library Journal: Grade 4-7. Greg's parents divorced when he was very young, and he lives with his mother in San Francisco. His father lives 200 miles away with his second wife and son. Once a month, Greg and his Dad spend a Saturday together, alternating the choice of activity. Greg, a smart but fearful kid, is appalled when his father announces plans for a two-day, character-building, white-water rafting outing with both sons. Soon after the trip begins, when Greg has barely had time to learn the basics, his father is bitten by a rattlesnake, and the boys' real adventure begins. Realizing that they can't wait for help to come to them, the youngsters pull together and push forward on a course that will test their courage, ingenuity, and physical strength. Petersen creates and sustains sympathetic characters, and involves them in situations where their mettle can be truly tested. Readers will be quickly caught up in the action and carried along through the rapids and boulders to the very end. It is particularly pleasing to find an excellent adventure story written at a level that younger readers can handle, and that will keep older readers fully engaged.?Darcy Schild, Schwegler Elementary School, Lawrence, KS
