i give this story 4/5 stars. I would have liked more if the parents never came home. Or Matt went with the indians . If Matt went with the indians they could exspand the book with more tragities and altimatly finding his happy ending.
the main characters in this story is Attean and Matt. I like Matt because he sticks to his pack. His family is late but he dosn't give up on them he knows his family is coming home
The settings in this story are breath taking iv'e never seen it but you can picture the views before roads and buildings took over the land. One of the settings is Attean's home (village). There is also Matt's home a caben deep in the woulds.
The conflict in this story is sad and gruesome. I don't know how I would make it alone in the wild. What happened was Matt and his family are moving to the wild Matt's pa had to go back and get his 9 months pregnet wife and his little sister. So they left Matt home alone for a long time.
The problem was a hard problem. Somehow Matt solved it he found the way to pass the time till his parents to come home. It was sad that Matt said no to the indians but it was the right choice because his family came home.
At the end of the story Matt heard a noise stir in the woods. He was shore it was his family. To his suprize it actully was his family walked I can emagion Matt was over joyed. Then Matt saw his mom she was sick. And there was no baby. Matt and his parents sat down and talked about Atten.
