Justin Cody’s Race for survival follows the story of a thirteen-year-old boy addicted to smartphones who finds himself alone in the wild after the kidnapping of his outdoor expert grandfather. Without a guide, without skills and mysterious strangers on his trail, he struggles to navigate the wilderness, running to meet a rescue helicopter… and, hopefully, his grandfather.
“Justin cody looked at the huge waterfall below him… In all his young life, he had never been so alone. As far as he could see, all he could see were boulders and trees, trees and boulders, and of course the river. There were no cars, no roads, no buildings, no human voices. Other than the rustle of a light breeze and the determined buzz of mosquitoes, his new world was silent. “
The book was written by Jacobson Cliff, the most published camping and canoeing author of all time, with a catalog of over a dozen how-to books, hundreds of articles and over a million copies sold.
Justin Cody’s Race for survival is published by 10,000 Lakes Publishing and can be purchased on Amazon or directly from Jacobson’s website at cliffcanoe.com.
