On the Hill

A mysterious wolf haunts the search for a missing child in Michigan’s Porcupine Mountains and a 13-year-old’s personal rite of passage. The young teenager, Ash, enlists your child's help, sending letters and compelling artifacts as evidence for the strange story that unfolds. This is a six-episode Experience.

It is a really joyful event, getting a package like this in the mail! This was a delightful experience for my son, and our whole family, for that matter. We will certainly be doing this again!

My daughter really enjoyed the whole experience of receiving the stories. She really loved the objects too and they helped to flesh out the story for her. This was a a really nice gift and we appreciate the amount of care and effort that has gone into it.

So great! It’s been super fun.

The prints are unmistakably wolf tracks, so why can only Ash see them? What about that howling in the night? A spirit animal is a great gift; for Ash it’s also a scary one. There’s a lost child to worry about and the search parties are turning up nothing. So Ash plans a dangerous excursion that has every chance of going horribly wrong.

Ash has always been the kind of child who connects easily with animals – more easily than with people sometimes. It’s no wonder that the stories of the Anishinaabeg are so compelling. But are they just stories? When Ash goes out on the hill is it myth or reality? The only way to find out for sure is to go along on the adventure, experience it as Ash’s confidant. It’s an intense journey, so breathe deeply. The moon is rising.

Ash is a gender-fluid sort of person and will happily present as either male or female, according to your choice, dear reader.
