    " great little auto bio by Gary Paulsen reminded me so much of a Jack London novel! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe | 2/1/2014

    " it was a really good book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Saran | 2/1/2014

    " Is that Gary Paulsen really wanted to win the dog race but he went through some tough times but still didn't quit even though he didn't win but to me it was great! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 1/28/2014

    " This was my favorite book when I was like 12. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 1/24/2014

    " The first half was just recolections of the lessons the guy lerned form his sled dogs. At first they were really interesting, but after a while they got rather boring. When he got to the part where he races the Iditarod, it got more interesting. This book over all was good, it taught you a lot. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Vanessa | 1/18/2014

    " I hated it.I was forced to read it because my class was. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chase Williams | 1/17/2014

    " This book is what I've been wanting to read in my English class. The book really appeals to me. If you like to read about hunting and a sled dog race then you'll love this book. This is the best book I've ever read in school. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kalie Lyn | 1/16/2014

    " One of my favorite reads from author and Iditarod racer, Gary Paulsen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tristen | 1/11/2014

    " I thought this book was great. I could put it down when I needed or wanted to, but it was a very good book. Gary Paulson writes just like Louis L'Amour, and he does not care how gruesome his writing is. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Desaray Mason | 1/8/2014

    " I like how he talked about what it was like with just him and the dogs in the wilderness. Then he would remember good memories about his family. He would always talk about his crazy hen Hawk and how she attacked everyone.Over all I would recommend everyone to read this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liam | 12/28/2013

    " THis book is very good because it's cute and for all I know seems like a true story. I wouldf recommend this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanne | 12/21/2013

    " A very short book that I listened to. It tell of true experiences of Gary Paulsen in Alaska and is read by the author himself. Most of it tells of his Iditarod experience which is fascinating but I wish it would have been a little longer with more info. Good book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 12/12/2013

    " This book has this freaky scene involving a flock of birds. I can't remember what it's about, but I remember having to hide the book and being afraid to go to sleep after reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mr. George | 10/28/2013

    " Beautiful read. Paulsen's personal experiences in nature are very poetic and real at the same time. Great Boy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 10/14/2013

    " Me and my 11-year-old son read this book at the same time. I'm really glad I read it. His relationship with and observation of animals is fascinating. I have a much better understand of the hardships involved with running the iditarod. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 9/30/2013

    " Gary Paulsen tells the story of his relationship with his dogs and his first Iditarod. The book seemed somewhat disjointed to me, especially when he goes from talking about the dogs and then starts in on the Iditarod with no buildup about getting there. Just so-so. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 L | 9/30/2013

    " This was the first Gary Paulsen book I read and the day by day account of his Iditarod experience is riveting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Admilson | 8/14/2013

    " this is a really hardship book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy Kernan | 8/2/2013

    " I love all of his books about dogsledding. He has such a natural storytelling way, very unassuming. I feel like a kid again when I read his books. I laughed, I cringed, I exhilarated with the dogs reading this book. A good book for an afternoon read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 3/21/2013

    " Stories/vignettes of Paulsen's adventures. It's easy to see where he gets his ideas for his books after reading this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zac | 5/7/2012

    " I would highly recommend this book for anyone who likes to read. It as a very nice plot about a man and his dog sled team. For me it is the perfect length for a book and takes about 2 hours to read. If you decide to read it enjoy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra Strange | 10/18/2011

    " Paulsen uses his experiences of dogsledding and the grueling Iditerod well in this book that shows the adventure and threat of this sport. His relationship with his dogs and the grit he had to show to endure the race makes the narrative riveting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 7/26/2011

    " I didn't enjoy this as much as Paulsen's other books (of which I have only read fiction) because the narrative was a series of vignettes loosely connected by the theme of running sled dogs. It was still an interesting look at this topic, but could have been developed in a more entertaining way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 6/25/2011

    " Evocative and fascinating, Paulsen has a unique lens into the wilderness. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thomas | 5/23/2011

    " Brain has to do what he did in Hatchet again,he has to!! Read the book to find out why!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 5/20/2011

    " I loved this book almost as much as brian's winter...you totally feel for the kid, and really just want to give him a hug at the end! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Coltan | 5/6/2011

    " It was a good and exciting book. Its a good short read for people who like a good ending and iteresting read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Irene | 4/22/2011

    " This book is a sequel to Hatchet. Again Brian's bravery and determination is what pulls him through. I love this book and it is equally as good as Hatchet. Brian's intelligence is evident in his survival skills. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 4/20/2011

    " The sequel to Hatchet; I found this a year or so later, and I was hooked by the end of the first chapter: "We want you to do it again." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vanessa | 4/20/2011

    " I have read the other books in this series and it only got better with The River. I was surprised that he was accompanied on this trip, and not only has he fought for his own survival, he now has fought to keep his partner alive! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Quinn | 4/15/2011

    " Certainly not as good as Hatchet but still a fantastic read for anyone who likes the outdoors. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christy | 4/14/2011

    " This is the sequel to “Hatchet,” and it’s every bit as exciting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 4/14/2011

    " I really loved this book, I really really recommends this book to anyone who love action and live or die situations in books. It has a very good hook in the beginning and get very inserting in every chapter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zack | 4/5/2011

    " I thought that this was a very good book and i would recommend it to anyone "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caleb | 4/1/2011

    " I think I would not be able to ride down a river on on raft, and make it to the trading post with bearly any sleep. At first when Derek got hit by lightning I thought dead like the poilt in the book Hatchet. I wish I could surive like that. (I've never been in the wild like Brian.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Callen | 3/15/2011

    " Not that good. Hatchet was a lot better, but this is a definitely a good book to read if you liked Hatchet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexxa | 3/9/2011

    " Another good follow up to Hatchet. Great adventure! "
