A tale for children of all ages, centered on two critter cousins who must find a way to team up with the Human Who Speaks from the Heart to preserve their homeland, Wild Nation.

The trip to Big Mountain is a test of the raccoons' cunning and courage, but upon arrival their greatest challenge is yet to come: how to communicate with this special human to usher in the peace and save Wild Nation.

Roscoe stared off into the evening sun. "There are stories handed down from the time the first elders made the trek to Big Mountain. The tales speak of waters so wide and swift that even the mighty bears are wary when crossing, of vast lowlands and marshes where the smartest of critters sometimes lose their way, and flatlands hot enough to make the most ornery of travelers take care. And if that's not enough, there's all the stuff you never know about until it's falling on you or chasing you down or staring you in the eye. But the cause is great and to be chosen is an honor."

"Jeff Connerton writes from the heart, sharing with readers his painful, in-depth exploration of his teenage son’s journey into the dark world of illegal drug addiction. In my private practice I find teen drug use to be a frequent issue for adolescents and their families. I highly recommend this book to both parents and teens.”
