Lost Trail
Nine Days Alone in the Wilderness

by Donn Fendler with Lynn Plourde
Illustrated by Ben Bishop
Down East Books, 2011

“I never should have climbed Katahdin in the first place. We had other plans.”
But in spite of Donn Fendler’s other plans, he DID climb mile-high Mt. Katahdin with his family and friends. But in a sudden July sleet storm, Donn got lost on the mountain. He was lost for nine days alone in the dense Maine wilderness, facing bugs, bears, and despair. But something inside Donn wouldn’t let him give up. He prayed, he fought, and he endured to become one of New England’s greatest survival stories.
