    "An incredible adventure book, one of the best I have ever read. It tells the story of a young boy who must survive in the wilderness after his adult companion is incapacitated. I could not help but strongly identify with young Brian as he attempts to find his way to safety."

    "This was a gripping read, one of the best I've read this year. The interweaving of the two young men's stories was brilliant, and very moving. As a huge fan of Gary Paulsen's fiction, I can recommend this book unreservedly."

    "I bought this book to read with my 9 year old son, who is a big fan of Hatchet. We both enjoyed the book. From a parental standpoint, I thought it was well written, filled with excitement and interesting scenes. Compared to Hatchet, I thought it was better written as the story and the language flowed much better. The only thing I didn't love was the ending. It seemed rather abrupt. My son loved it though and interrupted me multiple times with his own thoughts and theories on winter survival. So, from that standpoint, it's a thought provoking winner."
