If you’re looking for a good wilderness survival thriller, you found the right book. The wolf and bear scenes were a bit scary for my eleven-year-old son to read including the beginning chapter with the plane crash, but he never put it down. Now he wants to go camping in the woods. The problem is, I don’t camp!!
As someone who has grown in different group homes and foster homes, it brought up some old wounds. Especially with the lone wolf and I don’t belong feelings of the character. I did cry. But I would recommend it for kids and teens who battle with loneliness and depression. It is inspirational.
I’m an outdoors kind of guy and far from being young…lol. But I loved the book!! I would recommend it to any age level, mine included. It’s categorized as being a young teen wilderness survival book, but could also be for adults, especially the outdoorsy type.
I found it really educational. I learned a lot of cool bushcraft stuff and some history and geography lessons. You can tell the author must have been a teacher or is a teacher? Map reading, telling the time of day, early pioneer days. A definite read.
My twelve year old loves this book and can’t put it down. It arrived yesterday and he’s currently sitting on the couch reading it. He won’t go anywhere without this book and is already begging for the next book in the series.
