Stranded: A Story of Frontier Survival, a Western Heritage Award winner for Western Novel by Matthew P. Mayo, is based on a true account of 14 – year-old Janette Riker who, in the autumn of 1849, travels westward to Oregon Territory with her father and two brothers. With blizzards, frostbite, and gnawing hunger her only companions, Riker rises to each challenge, relying on herself more than she knew possible. Her only comfort comes in writing in her diary, where she shares her fears, her travails, and her dwindling hopes.
