“To the Mountain pits a father and son against the wilderness survival tale’s usual merciless elements: perilous trails, menacing predators, and poor cell reception. What lifts this novel above the ordinary also challenges readers—to enter the hyper-sensory perspective of the autistic boy as he puzzles his way through an insensate world. It is not a spoiler to say that love matters when the odds seem insurmountable and surrender feels like mercy.”
—CHARLIE QUIMBY, author of Monument Road and Inhabited
“A deeply affecting tale of a father’s love for his autistic son. Erik Raschke’s lyrical prose evokes both the awesome wilderness of the Rocky Mountains in winter and the unfathomable wilderness of the human heart."
—MARGARET COEL, New York Times bestselling author of Winter’s Child
