A BIZARRE ACCIDENT has wiped out electricity across most of the Western United States and, after months of waiting, the Tanager family is finally relocating to the safe zone. All that stands between them and their return to the modern world of T.V., video games, and running water is an overnight train ride.

But something goes wrong and young Sophie, Ella, and Jack Tanager find themselves separated from their parents and stranded in the middle of the desert.

Now it's up to them to find their own way out. If they have any chance of making it, the Tanager kids will have to be brave, tough, and smart.

But will even that be enough to escape from Devil's Canyon?
