We listened to this audiobook in the car and it was the perfect length - 3 disks. Definitely read or listen to 'Hatchet' first since this is an alternative ending to that book and it assumes you have read that one first. In Hatchet, Brian is left on his own to survive somewhere in the Canadian North after his plane crashes. This book is what Brian might have had to do to survive through a northern winter on his own (if he hadn't been rescued at end of summer as he was in Hatchet.) I love these books because I love books about the Canadian North, but the kids also loved the books because they were dramatic life and death stories about a kid and all the adventures he goes through to survive in the wild.
