This is a great coming of age story. I think it is a must read for all young adults who are getting into hunting because it will not only inspire them but will instill in them the importance of responsible hunting. Even for those who are not hunters this book is a great glimpse into the skills and trials that go into bow hunting. This book was an interesting read for me because it not only detailed the important steps involved in bow hunting but also gave facts about some of Minnesota's wildlife and hunting laws throughout the book. Definitely a book I will be recommending to some of the young adults and not-so young adults in my life!
