During spring break in March 2013, Mary Owen, a twenty-three-year-old student at George Fox University, went missing.

She was an avid adventurer and outdoor enthusiast who had previously hiked the 2653-mile-long Pacific Crest Trail (PCT).

This is a story of the agony one mistake can precipitate—a portrayal of blunder, peril, and reckoning on a hazardous mountain at a dangerous time of year. It includes obsession, the allure of the outdoors, intense longing for adventure, entrapment in the wild, and Providential survival. It is an unforgettable glimpse of community prayer, faith, and hope, also of days of silence turned into song and resurrection.
