The Mountain Story by Lori Lansens (7-May-2015) Hardcover - Lori Lansens

The mountain story by Lansens, Lori.
Story of Danny, who's just 18 and he's at Angel's Peak thinking about just ending it all. Starts out with the letter Danny writes to his son-years later.
He recalls his mother, all the good things. Frankie paints the whole house after Gloria dies-Danny's mother. He decides they need to go to CA, the desert, after Frankie has lost the house in a bet.
Danny is of Indian heritage and has no problem being outside. Wolf Truly is what they call him.  Love the gift the librarian gives him-his future.
As the tram drops them off, he still has walking up the mountain to achieve. There are other women who are there and one wants the particular flower. The secret lake is closeby. One is there to commemorate her wedding anniversary.
Love hearing of the sights and sounds as he travels.  Some chapters go back in time, some are present with those from the past.
Such strategy and survival skills. strong, powerful to the end....
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
