I loved this book. Thirteen year old Brian Robeson is in a single engine plane going to visit his father when the pilot has a heart attack and the plane goes down. Brian is stranded in the Canadian wilderness with nothin but his clothes, a windbreaker, and a hatchet. He struggles to survive. However, he never gives up.
