Journeying along a sixty-mile trip through the Adirondacks, a mother and daughter explore all the wonders the natural setting offers, such as eating wild blueberries, swimming in a water hole, and watching a bear stroll through the woods. Grab a backpack and join Sandra Weber and her eleven-year-old daughter Marcy for a trek in the Adirondack wilderness. Feel the sensation of climbing mountains, sleeping in open lean-tos, eating wild blueberries, floating like lily pads, and laughing with loons. Add alpine flowers, a bear, and five days of rain, and the result is an appreciation of nature. By the end of the 60-mile trip, mother and daughter also learn to appreciate each other.
