This is one of the best books ever written, and most certainly Gary Paulsens best book. You will find yourself transported by a love for the north, snow, sledding, and all the things you think you abhor. If you read it in summertime you might find yourself nostalgic for ice in your beard, the last time you were alone in the wilderness, or the last time you let yourself get so stinky your wife locked you out of the house. (I don't wish to spoil the comedy of error which unfolds here so I'm using some obtuse metaphors.) All of which is to say Paulsen should win some sort of standup comedy award for this book. A feel good strive and thrive book which will invigorate you. This is motivational literature that we read before we had books like Rise and Grind. (Another good read you should check out, I'm just saying this is the 'chicken before the egg'.) *Adult level reading/Teen reading.
