A very entertaining adventure book, for preteens and up about two boys lost in the far North of Canada and facing the approaching winter. Characterization is good and the chapters are short and the text is active. A good book for homeschoolers about living in the Arctic.

Not surprisingly, the author is Farley Mowat.
