Tracker by Gary Paulsen(review)
Tracker by Gary Paulson is the best book I have ever read in a while. It is about a thirteen year old boy named John that lost his parents in a plane crash when he was little. He now lives with his grandparents on a farm. Hunting is not a sport a sport to them it's how they live. His grandpa has an illness and isn't able to hunt with John the upcoming deer season. So John has to go out and shoot a deer to have meat on the table. His grandma is weird to me.She always knows when to have Johns food ready. John thinks his grandpa is going to die so he thinks he can cheat death by touching a deer instead of shooting it to put meat on the table. He spends two days and one night in the woods chasing the deer with no sleep. So he sees a deer and stays with it and never stops hunting that deer till he gets to touch it. So if you want a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat and want to find out John touches the deer you should read this book.

This book Tracker is about a kid named John who likes to hunt. He hunted with his grandpa all his life and this year he has to hunt alone because his grandpa is dying. His grandpa told him where to hunt. The first day he didn't see anything. The 2nd day he saw a doe and he shot her. She ran and he followed her. It took him 2 days to find her. He walked 2 days and 2 nights to find her and he only came home to get something to eat. When he found her he didn't shoot her he only touched her. When he got home he told his grandpa he shot a deer but she didn't die I only touched her. His grandpa said that he did the right thing. His grandpa told him he might get one next year. His grandpa said he might not be hear next year to tell him where to hunt but he said you should no where to hunt after all these years. He said he hopes the wolves don't chase the deer away. He mentioned that this is one year that hr didn't get a deer. His grandpa said as long a you keep food on the table I will be aright. I think you should get this book because if you like hunting you will like this book. If you like adventure books you will like this one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Title of review: My Review on Tracker
Number of stars (1 to 5): 4
A book for any hunting and tracking enthusiast, Tracker tells the story that many have faced when hunting for there food in the wilderness.
Description and summary of main points
John Born and his grandfather had always gone out and hunted a deer for its meat to get there family threw the long Minnesota winter. This year his grandfather was unable to go with him leaving john to shoot and track the deer himself. In the end johns hunting trip will mean not only his survival but his families as well.
This story can relate to any outdoorsman and if they have been in a kill or be killed situation. That concept makes it that much more interesting for the reader if they have hunted or fished.
If you're an outdoorsman then this is a book that you should definitely read. It will give you a new look on what a true hunt really is when your hunting for your own survival.
Your final review
I think this story was interesting for me because I like to deer hunt. To really be interested in the book you have to have done the things he had to do
to stay alive and save his family.
