After a short drive and a long hike, Dylan and his Eagle Scout troop reach their campsite, a remote beach on Hawaii's Big Island. It has a great view and a swimming hole, but it also has wasps, stinging ants, and foul-smelling drinking water. Another problem? Louie, a tough older boy who bullies Dylan. Then, a violent earthquake and tsunami rip the campers' world apart, and all previous troubles are forgotten. Dylan and Louie, who are the least injured, now must work together to help themselves and their fellow Scouts survive. Based on a true story. Library edition with trade jacket added.
