What a absolute gift Gary Paulsen left us with in his last book! This book will be loved by all, especially those fans of Hatchet. The story of an orphan Leif, alone after a plague wiped out his fishing village. He escapes in a canoe with a small boy running from this mysterious death heading north. Similar to Hatchet in a young boy’s quest to survive in the wilderness, Leif tries to navigate the waters and runs into many adventures along the way. This is best for grades 5 and up.
