15-year-old Cody battles grizzly bears and massive storms when he's trapped in Alaska's wilderness during a school project.

From multi-award-winning Ellie Crowe and Scott Peters comes a gripping Alaska adventure based on the true story of Tim Treadwell, America's famous Grizzly Man.

15-year-old Cody is thrilled to be in America's Katmai National Park with his cousins to research bears for his high school project. But they lose contact with the air taxi pilot when their satellite phone falls into the water. Suddenly the wilderness seems out of control. The cousins need help, fast. Cody sets out for Tim Treadwell's camp—the famous bear expert is his only hope. But hungry grizzlies roam the maze of twisting tunnels, and a storm is beginning to rage. Cody is no wilderness expert; he's a kid from California. He's way out of his element. Every hour is a fight because if he gives up, he'll never make it home. Can Cody survive the worst bear disaster in Katmai National Park's history?
