    In Hatchet, 13-year-old Brian Robeson learned to survive alone in the Canadian wilderness, armed only with his hatchet. Finally, as millions of readers know, he was rescued at the end of the summer. But what if Brian hadn't been rescued? What if he had been left to face his deadliest enemy - winter?

    Susan says: "Wonderful survival tale!"
    "Great Story for Pre- & 'tweeenagers"

    What did you love best about Brian's Winter?

    My 9-year old daughter and I have been reading all three of the Brian stories. We started with The Hatchet, then Brian's Winter, and just finished The River. Taken together, the books make a complete story. Reading just The Hatchet, left us wanting the rest of the story.

    The books had a good story line, lots of details, and no questionable language. There was enough yucky, gross stuff to please a kid without too much gore. The pilot's death was handled with sensitivity.

    The animal encounters were at times funny and at times scary. A good mix for kids. The descriptions of Brian making and using tools was done with accuracy.

    Overall, these books were great fun to listen to and discuss with a child. Both Richard Thomas and Peter Coyote did a nice job with the narrative. I thought that the music added some extra pizzaz to the story. Though at times, the score seemed to drown out some of the narrative.

    Overall, this book and the other 2 books were well worth the time and money.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Brian's Winter?

    The encounter between the bear, skunk, and Brian.


    Which character – as performed by Richard Thomas – was your favorite?

    Duh, Brian.
