Mowat takes his stories from the true adventures of the natives and frontiersmen of the Barrens. This lends great credibility to his story and his characters. Many real life challenges can be experienced by traveling along with the young adventurers as they face a life and death struggle in the Barrens of Northern Canada.

Lost in the Barrens 'by Farley Mowat' is, with no question, the best book I have read in my entire life! There wasn't a single part for me that was not making me want to read on. I think it was this way because of the detail and description Farley put into this book. This was the first book I have read by Farley Mowat and the day after I finished it I went out and bought another one called Never Cry Wolf. It, of course is good too. I had to read this book for a school project and honestly I did not think I would like it, but as I said in the previous paragraph, it was amazing. It just goes to show you really can't judge a book by its cover. My advice to anyone that reads this review for Lost in the Barrens is, get it. I can guarantee it will be one of the best books you will ever read!

This book was interesting because it keep the suspense going. It is entertaining because it makes you want to read more by leaving questions unanswered. It makes me feel fortunate for all. I have learn from it that some people don¿t have as much. It makes me think how can we be better and how something we think is right it¿s really wrong. I think you should read it because it is going to make you think about things you hadn¿t thought of.

This was an exiting and action filled book. My favorite part is the part were they get to go into the log cabin. It was funny when they walked in and the smoke made them choke. It was a very good book and hope you like it to.

I thought that Lost in the Barrens was a very exciting book. It kept me interested all of the way through. I thought that all of the action packed adventure was really amazing! All of the author's clever ideas matched the story completely. This story really shows you what it would be like to have to stay the winter in the deadly Barrens surviving on what ever you can find!

This is a fun filled suspenseful book. Two friends get shipped-wrecked in Canada's frozen north and must survive the winter. With only their instincts they must also survive the animals that live there. As well as the Eskimos they think are bad. The Book Lost in the Barrens is amazing! The book made me feel many different things as I read it like what will happen next or will they get enough food for the winter. The book is also very interesting because for me it told me how to start a fire with just sticks and how to make a log cabin. Lastly the book is very entertaining when you hear all of the suspenseful parts. I really think you should read this book!

The book was great! We enjoyed reading this book in class and it's required that I do a book report on this book. I have a feeling that a book report on 'lost in the barrens' will be quite interesting. I enjoyed Farley Mowat's imaginative ideas and great choice of characters!

Farley Mowat in his depiction of the struggle against the elements should be commended for his great effort. To truly appreciate the novel you must read, not simply to read, but read to interpret and understand. This book is a great one for young people and I fully believe that it deserves five (count 'em, 5) stars! The book provides the perspective of adventures amongst natives in Canada. And to the USA, yes we interact with our natives, as they were an integral part of our history. We simply didn't treat them like western US dirt like our neighbours to the south! Their struggle against the northern climate is an adventure in which they have to improvise objects of nature for their survival. In a way it solidifies their coming of age. An excellent read!

i am 10 years old, and my class read this book for a novel study assignment, many of my classmates and i find that the description of the the books tells about adventure and excitment. I was very dissapointed because it was very boring and unintereting, i had a hard time following because i was falling asleep, no offence to the author farley mowat, this is just one of his not so good books
