Brian's Winter
By Gary Paulsen
© 2002

Brian, stranded in the Canadian wilderness after surviving a plane crash has to overcome his biggest obstacle, winter. After his rifle breaks, will he perish without food or will he find a way to live off the land? How will he make weapons to hunt? Will he learn to stay alive with the bears and wolves that live in his new wilderness home? What role will the skunk play in his survival? How will the long hours he spent watching the beavers build a dam help him winterize his shelter? If you enjoy adventure stories, then you will find this book difficult to put down. Check out this book and find out if Brian has the skills and desire to survive the harsh Canadian winter.

My recommendation: 4 out of 5 stars
