Danger ahead. Evil on the river...
5-year-old Kenny, just released from three years in a state hospital, slips away from his new school in the pre-dawn hours with Joe, a fellow student, known for his skills in the wilderness of the Au Sable River Forest.
Paddling through verdant forests on the fabled Au Sable River, Bosco Academy students, braving brutal Michigan weather and a hijacked canoe, must use both prayer and a hatchet to triumph over armed bandits.
