This week’s featured book is Hostile Territory, by Paul Greci. Listen to the first chapter here. It’s available for checkout at the Skyview Library.
About the book: In Paul Greci’s Hostile Territory, a catastrophic earthquake strands four teens in the Alaskan wilderness—and leaves them without a civilization to return to.
Josh and three other campers at Simon Lake are high up on a mountain when an earthquake hits. The rest of the camp is wiped out in a moment—leaving Josh, Derrick, Brooke, and Shannon alone, hundreds of miles from the nearest town, with meager supplies, surrounded by dangerous Alaskan wildlife.
After a few days, it’s clear no rescue is coming, and distant military activity in the skies suggests this natural disaster has triggered a political one.
Josh and his fellow campers face a struggle for survival in their hike back home—to an America they might not recognize.
