But what if Brian hadn't been rescued? What if he had been left to face his deadliest enemy--winter?

Enjoyed the re-make of what happened during the winter months of Brian's survival. Boys enjoyed learning, and living through the winter of snow, hunger and survival. Read full review

Great survival story, read it in one evening. I read Hatched over 8 years ago so Brian's Winter was like diving back into the story of survival in the Canadian wilderness. Read full review
