Millions of readers of Hatchet, The River, Brian’s Winter, and Brian’s Return know that Brian Robeson is at home in the Canadian wilderness. He has stood up to the challenge of surviving alone in the woods. He prefers being on his own in the natural world to civilization.
When Brian finds a dog one night, a dog that is wounded and whimpering, he senses danger. The dog is badly hurt, and as Brian cares for it, he worries about his Cree friends who live north of his camp. His instincts tell him to head north, quickly. With his new companion at his side, and with a terrible, growing sense of unease, he sets out to learn what happened. He sets out on the hunt.

I home-school and am married with three sons. Listening to books while I get things done (like driving) has become a favorite pass-time.
Excellent book, Gary does it again. A wonderful addition to the Brian chronicles. I wish I could see more of Brian and Susan.
a great book however a little graphic. I loved it but the bear kill was really detailed so use caution with really young children. now I'm beyond excited wondering what will be the next book in brians life?! will he marry Susan and live like the small horns or instead will he wound up like billy?!
I just marathoned through my favorite children's series. I never thought that I could be able to finish it so quickly. the music did a really good job of setting the tone, and the narrators were very easy to listen to. I'm going to start on Guts next.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Brian has grown up and has learned many things to make his life in the forest satisfying. While there is some tragedy in this story it is still a very coming to nature book. This is a great series to listen to, be you young or old, boy or girl, it is awesome and I will relistening to them in the future. Same narrator as all the Hatchet books. Start with the first book Hatchet.
I have existed since the beginning of time at the morning of the world and I shall exist until the last star falls from the heavens!!!
Yes anyone who liked Hatchet or Brian's Winter will enjoy continuing the journey with this book.
I liked the survival aspects of the story and by now you have gotten to know Brian but also you get to see him grow up.
I think all of Gary Paulsen's Brian books are very good!!!
