did not like it
bookshelves: history-and-nonfiction, true-adventure
Read in January, 2006

OK, I'll admit it, I don't like books about stupid people doing stupid things. Admittedly, this kid was a kid and can't be blamed for being stupid--it often comes with the territory. I still just don't see why people like reading this book. The protagonist isn't admirable, quite the contrary. And he goes against all wisdom about living in wilderness. And the consequences, deservedly, follow.
