Riassunto: The story of a young boy who survives for twelve days in blizzard conditions on Aspen mountain. After swearing the reader to secrecy he reveals the secret that saved his life - the furry mountain monkeys of Aspen, Colorado. Find out about these friendly creatures who have lived in the abandoned silver mining caves of Aspen for over a hundred years. With the help of a hot spring and their glowing green eyes, the monkeys have created a jungle in a cave that is a sight to be seen. Children in Aspen delight in these glowing green eyes every night as the lights of snowcats dot the ski slopes above the town!
L'autore: Vince Lahey was born in New York City and raised in Lee, Massachusetts. He attended the Berkshire School in Sheffield, Massachusetts, and graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder in 1991 with a degree in Psychology and English. He moved to Aspen in 1994. In 1997, Vince saw a contest advertised in the Aspen Daily News challenging people to write children's stories that incorporate Aspen history into the tale. Vince wrote the monkey story and submitted it, never to hear another word about the contest. He wonders now if the contest ever really existed! The tale he had written was pure fantasy - or so he thought! In 1998 the Winter Olympics were held in Nagano, Japan, and living in that town right beside the ski mountain is a troupe of furry mountain monkeys! It seems that by writing the story, the monkeys actually came to be! Today, Vince lives in Aspen. Vince is an avid skier. He has won the Colorado Extreme Skiing Championships twice and coaches for the Aspen Valley Ski Club. Vince has written two books for the Choose Your Own Adventure Series: River of No Return and Mountain Biker
