Sixteen-year-old Savannah Evans walks with a slight limp thanks to a 
gymnastics’ accident that dashed her Olympic dreams, but didn’t stop her from 
attending an adventure camp in Idaho. At Camp Arrowhead, she quickly 
befriends Jade Chang and Rico Cruz, but Conner Swift taunts Savi because of 
her injury. 

When the four are teamed together for an overnight white-water river rafting 
adventure, Savi refuses to get in the same raft with Conner. Unfortunately, the 
director will not reassign her. 

A fun expedition down the river turns into a nightmare when their raft slams 
into a huge rock and their adult guide disappears down the river. 
Without their guide and desperately trying to steer an out-of-control raft, they 
pass the “last chance” marker and enter the larger rapids. With Jade pinned 
between the raft and a rock, and Rico clinging to a lifeline, Savi must cut the 
raft free.

When the four drag themselves out of the river, they’re bruised, beaten, lost, 
and twenty-five miles from camp. Because of late-night campfire tales of 
Vexel, a vicious animal that roams the nearby woods, Savi and the others are terrified.  

Savi becomes the unlikely leader who tries to guide the group back to Camp 
Arrowhead. Limited supplies, injuries, and the constant threat of Vexel—who 
Savi fears is stalking them, complicate the harrowing return trip.

Readers will enjoy dramatic survival scenes and the group working together, 
solving problems, and learning to overcome adversity.



My name is Gary Rodriguez, and I live in California. I'm the president of 
LeaderMetrix Inc., a consulting company that specializes in senior-level 
executive coaching, organizational development, and conflict resolution. 
Previously, I worked for eighteen years in the radio business as an executive 
where I spent several years as one of the original managers of Infinity Broadcasting. 

Following a successful radio career I became the president of a non-profit organization for a season. 
As a young man, I spent a tour of duty in the U.S. Army where I was recognized 
as the youngest Drill Instructor in the Army's history at age 18 years. I was also 
awarded the Silver Star (the nation's third highest award for valor) while serving in a combat zone.

Over the past few years, I've written three non-fiction books and then I decided to write a novel. 

My first book, Purpose-Centered Public Speaking, was published in 2009 and 
was re-published this summer (2014). Then I wrote a companion workbook 
designed to help people implement the principles taught in my first book. 
Next, I wrote Overcoming The Fear Of Public Speaking. And this past year,
I wrote my first novel, Escape Through The Wilderness.
