Jack MacLaren and his partner, Charlie Longbough, set out from the Rocky Mountains, bound for New Orleans, with a season's worth of beaver pelts and high expectations of the wealth they will bring. But, unbeknownst to them, a war is brewing with England, and the British had blockaded the mouth of the mighty Mississippi River, halting all commerce in or out of the river. Jack's and Charlie's furs are nearly worthless, and their visions of wealth evaporate.

Broke and discouraged, they head north for St. Louis, hoping to join up with a fur company bound for the far western mountains. But dangerous, ruthless men, and one of the most cataclysmic events of the century, conspire against them and death hunts them at every turn. Download and start listening now!

    " This is a good book. It is thrilling and interserting from the start. You will not dout this book. Brian is out in the wild do a big thing for the goverment. When his friend goes in a coma . But form what you dont know. Read it and you will find out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/31/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph | 1/25/2014

    " I chose this book because of its awesome companion The Hatchet. The book is about a boy named Brian who has just survived the Canadian wilderness for about 54 days by himself. In the story the goverment comes and asks him to do it again, so they can learn how he survived. With him will be a goverment paychologist named Derek Holtzer, who will come to take notes. In the adventure Derek gets struck by lightning and falls into a coma and Brian has to transfer him to a trading post through a river. My favorite quote in the book would be "You need the tension created by the emergancy" because Brian doesn't feel like the survival is real untill something really happens that makes him jump. Gary Pulsan's writing style is like a fast moving river and never stops to rest. I never found a dull part in his book. i would recommened this book to people who like books with survival and adventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 1/13/2014

    " I think overall as a book I like this one more than the first. Something about the dangers of the river combined with keeping someone else alive besides himself, it made Brian's adventures all the more impressive and his growth even more incredible. "

    " brian's adventures continue in a very real and well thought through manner. great story about a boy and his drive to survive when there is no access to modern day aid. "
