In the news this morning, Don Fendler, the hero of the classic Maine story, "Lost On a Mountain in Maine," died Monday at the age of 90.  At the age of 12, Fendler was lost alone for 9 days on Mt. Katahdin.  He walked 48 miles and lost 16 pounds during the ordeal.  Most Maine students have read his book, and many had met Mr.Fendler who visited schools from Kittery to Fort Kent to share his story of survival.
