Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dianne Ochiltree
A title in the "True Tales of Survival" nonfiction series from Edge Books/Capstone, this book chronicles 11-year-old Brennan Hawkins' four-day ordeal, wandering alone in the Uinta Mountains of Utah. Brennan lost his way on the very first day of Boy Scout camp when he took a wrong turn on his way to dinner. Although it didn't take long before his absence was noticed by friends and camp counselors, it was already nearing dark and the temperature was starting to fall. By 9:45 p.m., sheriff's deputies and other adults were out looking frantically for the lost camper. By the end of the next day, more than 1,000 people were searching the mountain where Brennan was last seen—and the next day, rescue volunteers numbered 3,000. The author details their heroic efforts as well as the challenges Brennan faced alone in the woods with gripping detail. Actual news photos from the coverage of the event illustrate Brennan's adventure. Kids will enjoy this incredible story of courage and the human will to survive. This series is particularly well designed to help below-level readers access the text with controlled vocabulary, short sentence structure, clear chapter headings, simple page design and precise photo-text matches. Reinforced binding makes this a perfect choice for classroom or library. Reviewer: Dianne Ochiltree
