Overview Thirteen- and 14-year-old Chester and Tyler Chantyman and their neighbor, Tonya, attempt to escape to the Kluskus Reserve, towing the boys' seriously ill grandmother on a toboggan through grizzly, wolf, and moose territory.
Publishers Description Thirteen and fourteen year old Chester and Tyler Chantyman live with their grandmother on the Nazko First Nations Reserve. Competing for the affection of their pretty next-door neighbor, fourteen-year old Tonya Clement has been their biggest worry up to now. Then one snowy night in January, their grandmother has a stroke. The last place they want to take her is the hospital. Weeks earlier, in the fall of 1997, the bustling logging town of Quesnel has been invaded by a special task force of government agents bent on rescuing children they consider, at risk. In the wake of their investigations, seventy-two children are taken from desperate parents, some by the RCMP. Fearing they'll be apprehended, Tyler, Chester, and Tonya attempt to escape to the Kluskus Reserve in the night, thirty miles away. The road they must take is known by locals as the Kluskus Trail, one of the most rugged in central B.C. Towing the seriously ill woman on a toboggan is tough enough. But traveling through grizzly, wolf and moose territory, scaling a volcanic mountain, and crossing partially frozen rivers pushes their endurance and friendships to the limit. The four-legged predators are nothing compared to the two-legged ones. Based on a true story. Faye Cyr and her husband Don, live in Kelowna, B.C. They have two sons Hugh and Aaron, two daughter-in-laws and six grandchildren. Don is a transport truck driving instructor and Faye is an R.N. specializing in coronary care. She has also written their story of five years in two isolated coastal logging camps, Where the Bears Play.
