A remarkable classic about the struggles of young James Vanderbeck and his family to not only survive, but thrive in the harsh winter in the northern woods of Canada. This is an amazing story about an exceptional family, especially hardy, resourceful, and courageous Jim and his younger brother.

Read this book a couple of times in high school and loved it. Just read it again and still love it. If you like outdoors stories, this would be great for you ... it has snow, cold, snow, wolves, dogs, and all kinds of critters.
