    6. I ll be back, 6 weeks at the outside I read this book years ago, and still remember it It takes place back in the olden days when settlers had to build their own cabins and going several miles was a huge deal because you didn t have transportation well, except you feet Daniel and Will, young boys left by their father to begin a farm while he goes back to fetch the rest of the family, learn to survive on their own by hunting, fishing, and gathering They find a friendly Indian, who helps them surv [...]

    9. Great book based on an actual story in which 2 boys ages 12 and 10 survive on their own in a partially finished cabin in the wilderness of Ohio in the early 1800 s.Probably for the 8 12 year old crowd, this book reminded me of Hatchet and My Side of the Mountain I think my son will really enjoy this.

    10. I read this to my 13 and 9 year old boys and we all really enjoyed it The independence and creativity that Will and Daniel used to survive 8 months on their own in the wilderness was pretty amazing My only thing about the book is that I m sure I ve read a VERY similar book with a different title not Hatchet But, in any case, we read it with enthusiasm.

    11. Quick read, very well written I felt like I was there with the boys I was so scared for them the whole time and was a nervous wreck by the end of it Finished it in a day, I just couldnt put it down

    12. Will and Charlie are to stay at their newley constructed cabin while their father goes back to Pennsylvania to retrieve their mother sibs They end up spending 8 months on their own and learn how to take care of themselves during a harsh winter A great read and it s easy to follow.

    13. Interesting story of two brothers who come with their father to settle the Ohio River Valley in pre revolutionary times Their father leaves the boys to got get the rest of the family with plans to return in a few weeks Instead months pass and the boys must learn to survive in the wilderness.

    14. If you loved Hatchet you ll love this book ,it is also simliar to Sign of the Beaver Two boys left alone in the wildreness while their dad goes back to get rest of family to join them in their new home.

    15. Loved this book and cannot believe it is based on a true story Perfect read aloud for kids aged 9 and up Youngest boy in the book is 9 A younger child might enjoy the story but I think a 9 year old would be amazed by what the boy in this book, at the same age, does.

    16. The boys and I loved this story of boys living on their own in an unfinished cabin waiting for their family to return.

    17. I read this prior to giving it to my 10 year old grandson It is a good story about two boys having to winter over in Ohio in a cabin all by themselves.
