My brother read this book. He loved Gary Paulsen (although he HATED to read). Most Paulsen books are late-elementary to middle school reading level, but if you have a child who doesn't like to read (and likes adventures), Paulsen might just be the author to get your child excited about reading--even at early High School level.
I enjoyed this book b/c it was intriguing to have an alternate ending to the book "Hatchet". There is a lot of great information on how to survive in winter time out in the wilderness and I love the author's research and imagination. My son loved all 5 books in this series. (He read them twice within two weeks)
A very quick read of what might have happened if... I love reading books that make me feel like I am living what I am reading. While reading this book in the dead of winter, I felt like I was right in the shelter with Brian, howling wind, neighbor skunk Betty and the fear of freezing and starving to death.
