Justin lives with his aunt and uncle on their sheep ranch near Billings Montana. It’s an idyllic setting, though hard work, but he loves the life. Now a rogue grizzly bear is terrorizing the ranches in the area. The bear has already killed several sheep and seriously wounded the ranch’s guard dog, Old Molly. Justin’s aunt and uncle go to Billings to meet with a wildlife ranger, and Justin is left to watch over the ranch. When the bear strikes again, Justin feels compelled to go after it.

This book was a short book, but it packed a lot in it. A boy who lived in alaska had a sheep that he prized and loved and one day a grizzly bear came and killed it along with all of the other animals. Enraged the boy took a rifle and went out to kill the bear and it turns into a battle between him and the bear. I think any one who enjoys hunting would really enjoy this book I know I did a lot.

At barely more than fifty pages this was a very short read. I also thought that the reading level was easier than the 5.5 indicated on the back. It was an axciting story but there was minimal character development. Aould be great for a student who needs a book that quickly gets to the action.
Not an especially thrilling story according to Sean. At least the bear survived. Probably good for young 'uns to read for themselves as the language is simple and the plot easy to follow. This edition claims 80 pages, the one I read to Sean had 52, but is not listed at Goodreads.

This is what I hate about kindle, you don't get an understanding of a book's length. I knew this would be a kid's story, but I thought a full length novel. It was a long short story. Other than that, I enjoyed it. Exciting story full of action and I loved the Montana scenery.

This was an older book by Gary Paulsen that I thought my boys would like. It was hard to track down, but worth it. It was a good reading level for lower readers, and had an adventurous storyline that appeals to boys.

It's great if you want a good laugh. Without its hilariously bad moments it'd get a two stars.

Although he was never a dedicated student, Paulsen developed a passion for reading at an early age. After a librarian gave him a book to read--along with his own library card--he was hooked. He began spending hours alone in the basement of his apartment building, reading one book after another.

Running away from home at the age of 14 and traveling with a carnival, Paulsen acquired a taste for adve
