Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
When a hot scratchy feeling comes over Jesse, he knows he is about to start throwing stuff. The twelve-year-old boy realizes that he is ornery, but he cannot control his wild impulses. When he hits his Pa in a fit of anger, Jesse flees to the mountains. Not knowing whether or not he has killed his father, Jesse is determined to hide and become a mountain man. Through hunger, fear, and loneliness, Jesse learns to trap and skin pelts. He even manages to make a friend of a loner named Larry after robbing his traps. But Jesse sometimes feels as though he is being watched. A crazy mountaineer wants Jesse off the mountain and his warnings soon become threats. In first person dialect comes an action-filled adventure with historical details about pioneer life. A hunt with a ferocious bear adds a dramatic punch. Jesse learns a lot about himself and his strange behavior. It seems that there is something in his past, some dim memory about his mother that has impacted his behavior. Written by an award-winning author, this is a terrific story for any child who has ever dreamed of striking out on his or her own. 2002, Marshall Cavendish,
— Laura Hummel
School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-Twelve-year-old Jesse's uncontrollable temper brings him grief, and after brutally hitting his father, he runs away from his frontier community on the Oregon Trail to try to survive in the nearby mountains. As careful as he is to conceal himself, he is noticed, especially by a patient mountain man, Larry, whose traps he has robbed. From Larry, Jesse reluctantly learns survival skills; he also learns about Billings, a dangerous mountain man inexplicably intent on driving Jesse away. Collier moves the plot forward slowly, providing fascinating details of frontier and mountain life, and using conversation and Jesse's inner monologue to develop his characters. Eventually Jesse begins to figure out the answers for himself, and the story is resolved believably. A well-constructed work of historical fiction.-Lee Bock, Glenbrook Elementary School, Pulaski, WI Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
