This book is a follow up to Hatchet, which some people have probably read. The story is where a boy has to survive in the winter up in northern Canada after his plane crashed into a lake. Brian ( the boy) has to deal with things like food shortage and sinking into the snow. Also there are the problems about how cold it is up north, and what he will where for winter clothes. I think that this book is very good for people who like survival books. I rate it 4 1/2 stars because it was really good but I thought that it was a little bit short.
