Book Description

When their plane goes down in the remote wilderness, Devin, Nadia and Marcus are in a race for their lives. But the roaming bears and harsh outdoors are not the only dangers they face.

As they learn make shelter out of tree branches and build a fire from scratch, they discover that Wiley, the only surviving adult in their group, is not all that he seems. He has a secret to keep and will do anything to stop it getting out. On the run and in danger, the three must outrun Wiley, escape a raging forest fire and outwit a hungry grizzly bear to stay alive.

Combining pulse-pounding adventure and survival skills in a colorful graphic novel format, Graphic Guides are sure to be a hit with young readers.

Wild Ride is illustrated by Michael Deas and packed with survival tips from how to build a fire to surviving a bear attack and more.
