The only thing better than going on an adventure is doing it with a friend. So when Miguel decides to hike through the mountains of Washington and Wyoming, he is delighted that Ruth, a little black mouse, decides to tag along. Despite her small size, Ruth keeps up with Miguel as he walks the trail and scrambles over boulders. She’s brave too. A wolf howling in the night and the threat of bears in the woods doesn’t bother her one little bit. Miguel, on the other hand, is a little more nervous!
The Adventures of Miguel and Ruth, the Mountaineering Mouse is a charming story about a human-animal friendship and the joy of hiking. Miguel's adventures in the mountain ranges of Western USA and his vivid descriptions of the amazing geography and wildlife he encounters there will both delight and inspire nature lovers of all ages.
