11 scouts set out with their troop leaders and some friends to hike out and camp way out on Halape Point, down by the ocean on their island Hawaii. This trip is the highlight of the year, and the culmination of preparation and practice and skill building. And they are excited as they set out, first by car and then by foot. Itís going to be a challenging hike, but camping on the beach far away form everyone will be awesome!  Little do they realize how much their skills and teamwork are going to be tested. Little do they imagine that they may not all make it back.  For they are hiking right into a disaster. A massive earthquake is about to strike,  throwing the very rocks of the earth into turmoil, and not long after the ocean will begin to pull back as a tsunami begins to take form.  It is a pleasure to reintroduce the writing of Graham Salisbury with such an exciting and compelling story.   (New Hampshire Isinglass nominee, 2010)
