FIFTEEN TRAVELERS, including four young children and six teenage boys, are aboard a small seaplane. They are bringing a sefer Torah to Seven Swan Bay, a tiny Jewish community on a lonely inlet in the far north. Suddenly, their plane is caught up in a fierce storm. Compelled to make an emergency landing, they find themselves downed in an isolated section of the northern woods. With no means of communication, practically no food, and no medicines, they settle down for a night or two outdoors. But when days go by with no sign of rescue or help, they are forced to learn new arts of survival in the plentiful world around them.

“I don’t know exactly how to get us out of the wilderness,” said their pilot Paltiel, “but I do know how to live here. G-d’s earth is truly a wonder. We are surrounded by everything we need.”

Based on her own first-hand experiences in the woods, June Leavitt tells an exciting, true-to-life story of a highly unexpected adventure. And along each step of the way, she shows how the world of Torah and mitzvos are an integral part of Jews’ lives - even in the wilderness!

    When you read the summary online, this book may seem a bit boring, but I have read it again and again, and I think it's wonderful. Unlike the books of "and they got lost and they shouted 'help' and they were saved and they lived happily ever after", this book has completely surprising turns. It is a great read for older children and young adults.
