Great book, full color photos, excellent information! As a new kayaker (but someone who's been on several guided advanced white water rafting trips) I found the section on reading a river to help understand safe-to-travel versus either pre-scout or portage areas really helpful. Found the pictures plus accompanying text for these and many other topics (wet-exit from kayak, paddle strokes, kayak carrying & entry options...) very helpful and well done.
Talented, fun-to-read rewrite of an age-old fairy tale. Characters are interesting and intelligent. Well worth the time to read/listen to! Readers on this book on cd are enjoyable to listen to.
Great characters, really cool setting and a strong heroine that people will enjoy getting to know.
This was required reading for college-prep high schoolers of previous generations. Gives the reader a lot to think about, a book that will stay with you for a long time. This book was the predecessor to this generations "Survivor" style reality games, or "The Hunger Games" trilogy. Quick read that's worth the time.
Powerful series that draws you in and stays with you long after you've finished it. Explores family relationships, friendships, long-held beliefs in oneself and ones' abilities. Kaniss is the absolute antithesis of the helpless female. Well worth reading!
