    These words, spoken to Brian Robeson, will change his life. Two years earlier, Brian was stranded alone in the wilderness for 54 days with nothing but a small hatchet. Yet he survived. Now the government wants him to go back into the wilderness so that astronauts and the military can learn the survival techniques that kept Brian alive. Soon the project backfires, though, leaving Brian with a wounded partner and a long river to navigate. His only hope is to build a raft and try to transport the injured man a hundred miles downstream to a trading post - if the map he has is accurate.

    Pam says: "Love Gary Paulsen"
    "Kids loved it. Great for three hour road trip."

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely recommended for kids age 8-14. Compelling story. I had a car load of boys who spend more time with video games than books, and they really enjoyed the story. Couldn't wait to get back in the car for more.


    What other book might you compare The River to and why?

    Classic Gary Paulsen


    What about Peter Coyote’s performance did you like?

    A pace and presence that the kids found compelling. Kept their attention well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I did a post-story survey in the car, and each kid had a different moment they liked best.
