Denzil Frost 1st Gary Paulsen
Two years ago Brian was stranded in the woods and survived. The government wants to do it again with someone taking notes on how he survived. During a storm Brian's partner is hit by lightning and falls into a coma. Brian has to build a raft and ride down a river to a trading post to save his partner.
He is the Hero in the story because he had to carry and unconscious man (Derrik) 100 miles to a trading post in under two days
He is the Sidekick in the story because he came with Brian to the woods to take notes on what he did
The theme in the story is "In tough situations you have to make the wisest decision"
I liked this book but there were some parts I didn't like. The book was good its just that Brian kept beating himself up (not literally) and complaining. This book kind of tells you how Brian did stuff and I think that's neat. Overall the book was good.
