Book Description

In this latest installment of FalconGuide's Adventures with the Parkers series, the Parkers, an intrepid family of four, journey to Acadia National Park in Maine where they explore the beautiful coastal waters and hike many of the park's finest trails, including to the top of Cadillac Mountain, the first place in the U.S. to see the sun rise every morning. They decide to end their trip by camping on an island within the national park, but when Mom tries to kayak back to the mainland, she gets beached on a remote island--and quickly discovers she is not the only one stranded there!

Each book in the exciting Adventures with the Parkers series for kids 8–13 explores a popular national park and is packed with adventure as well as engaging and educational facts about nature, outdoor safety, and much more. Vacation has never been this fun!
