"If I could give it 2.5 stars, I would. Oddly enough - my main critique is its length - too short. The beginning was lovely: descriptions of Brian settling into his life in the woods, finding the dog, journeying together. However, once the "action" starts it moves pretty quickly. Also some cliched use of the "it's personal" trope. Also - Brian comes off a bit of a braggart - assuming that everyone - park rangers to native peoples - doesn't know as much about life "in the bush" as he does. For example, opting not to use a firearm because he is a purist, etc. he is also fairly dismissive of his home life - mom and dad - and seems to lack some basic empathy that his reckless behavior might affect others. Regardless, still a fun story to follow.

" This book is a great book that I think is perfect for people that like survival and action books. " said.

" Read in an hour, sitting at the library. Yes, I sat at a library reading on my day off. " said.

" Terrific read, novella length. (I'd be more of a feral creature like Brian, but for the mosquitoes and biting flies that are acknowledged in these books but not sufficiently described as the peace-wrecking monsters they are.)Some wonderfully affecting passages about dogs. " said.

" The saga is over and this book hung. " said.

"The river and wilderness belong to Brian and his new companion, until he discovers a terrifying scene at a campground nearby his hunting grounds. His closest friend may be in danger, and he is willing to risk his own life in order to protect her.

I have never read a "Brian book" before, although I had read excerpts from Gary Paulsen's various works many times. I liked that Paulsen's style mirrored the situation in the woods--bare-boned and raw.

I recommend this to anyone, especially those kids in my class who really liked reading Hatchet in fifth grade.
