A Boy and his Dog in the Woods

You should read this book because it was very cool when Erik ran off into the woods with a stranger dog who he has known for only for one day. Erik must completely trust this dog to survive. Erik must use all the skills he learned in hunter's safety to survive and have food and water. This was one of the best books ever. YOU SHOULD READ IT!
