Bandits Peak

Chris Eboch

$2.37 on Kindle

While hiking in the mountains, Jesse meets a strange trio. He befriends Maria, but he’s suspicious of the men with her. Still, charmed by Maria, Jesse promises not to tell anyone that he met them. But his new friends have deadly secrets, and Jesse uncovers them. It will take all his wilderness skills, and all his courage, to survive.

Readers who enjoyed Gary Paulsen’s Hatchet will love Bandits Peak. This heart-pounding adventure tale is full of danger and excitement.

“Great story for reluctant and struggling readers Bandits Peak will definitely appeal to boys and girls who like stories set in the wilderness. The author does a nice job of putting the main character in a position where he has to make tough choices where he weighs his own safety against securing the safety of others. It will also appeal to reluctant readers because the length is not intimidating, and the story is told in a fast-paced, understandable voice. As a former teacher of both junior high and high school struggling and reluctant readers I would stock this book in my classroom library. ”
