I don't see anything from Stephen King about this, but he has to admit the book Lost on a Mountain in Maine inspired this book. The true story of a 12 year old boy who was lost and survived two weeks in the Maine wilderness in the 1930s sounds like Trisha's experience in this book. Wonder why he didn't acknowledge this? I learned about this book because the subject of the book just died at age 90.
