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.
This is an awesome book! It is the sequal to "Hatchet". Sure Brian survived and got rescued, but what if he never did? Could he survive the winter? What would Brian do?
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.
I read this book along with Hatchet to my 11 yr old son. He LOVED it!! We are looking forward to reading the next one in the series The River!! Thanks to PBS we got this book for free!! Love it
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)
This book was excellent. It is the sequel to "Hatchet" by Gary Paulsen. Sure at the end of "Hatchet" Brian was rescued. But, what if Brian HADN'T been rescued? Will Brian live through the winter? If he does will he eventually be rescued? Read the book and find out!
