I was trying to find more information on this and the Blue Ridge Memorial. Is there any way to access the newspaper articles mentioned or even the book? I have not had much luck with any online archives or even a place to purchase the book mentioned in this article. Hopefully this is still a monitored page and more legitimate than the others I have found with different background stories that seemed to be mostly tall tales.

Sad story. But testimony to the endurance of such a young hiker trying to do his teacher a favor.

I am in tears reading this heartbreaking story. I do not care how long ago it was. That poor child, cold and alone. His family.....mother. Sad, so very sad. :(
