A teenager and his mother's boyfriend are on what his mom had hoped would be a relationship building backpacking trek through the formidable mountains and vast forests of Montana's Bob Marshall Wilderness, when suddenly their outing turns into a deadly battle to save their very lives. Cut off by a fast-moving forest fire, they must use their wits, as they struggle through their rugged, wilderness-survival ordeal. Pursued by raging fire behind and trapped by backfires set by firefighters ahead, the two consider the only escape route possible - running the savage whitewater of the BearClaw River on a primitive raft. But the BearClaw holds as many dangers as the fire itself, particularly through Hellgate Gorge and its most feared hydraulic, the Grinder. Then they discover they are being pursued by a revenge-seeking mother bear. "If you're a reader who likes action books, you've found the best. BearClaw has excitement around every corner; each chapter making it impossible for you to put it down. A rocky relationship between a teenage boy and his future stepfather builds into understanding of one another during their survival ordeal. A great book -- exciting -- fun to read." --Kari MacGuire, Author, Running for Your Life.
