really liked it

In the prologue Gary Paulsen says he received a lot of letters saying they thought Brian had been rescued too soon and they thought it would be more of a survival story if he had been there all winter too. Paulson said the summer story was necessary to this because if Brian hadn’t learned to live in the summer he wouldn’t have made it in the winter.

I love that he ends up with a skunk as his best friend and lifesaver. I liked this one but not as much as Hatchet as it felt a little rushed. I would suggest reading this one second before reading The River I think having read The River with so much about after he is rescued it skewed my thoughts on this one because of all the research he did after he was rescued.

All in all a good book but I enjoyed Hatchet better.

3 ½ Stars
