Raven has moved with her sister Lily, her mum and stepfather Scott to Jenkins Creek – a mountainous area, far from their home in Cottonwood Bluffs.
After a long trek up the mountain with Scott and Lily, there is a rockslide and suddenly Raven is on her own in the wilderness.
Written by the author of Nim’s Island, Raven’s Mountain is a young girl readers version of Gary Paulsen’s Hatchet. Raven has to survive alone on the way down the mountain with very little resources.
