really liked it
bookshelves: middle-grade, read2012, reread, tween, cues-library
Read in September, 2012

This is such great survival porn. Without any awkwardly idealized Indians like in The Sign of the Beaver etc. I love the times when Brian is all I MADE FIRE. I DID FOOD. I AM MAN. The passages about his new oneness with nature aren't even too cheesy.

My only complaint is... no one cares about your 1987 divorce angst. No one. Cares.
