With a similar setting as the harsh Alaskan winters of Revolver, Far North also uses this setting to challenge the main characters in surviving.

Gabe leaves his grandparents and a promising high school football career in Texas to be near his father in the Northwest Territories. His boarding school roommate, Raymond, is from a Native American village. The two share an easy acquaintanceship before a fateful plane ride that leaves them stranded in the wilderness with a Dene elder who does not speak English. Some summaries and reviews of the book make much of the clashing cultures, while, really, it seems that all involved are respectful of each other. Both boys, but especially Raymond, receive a bush education from the elder, who gets to live some of his last wishes before a sudden death that leaves the boys on their own. There is lots of action for Hatchet fans and the characters are solidly drawn. Native American cultural and issues are looked at from the outside by our European American main character, who does not judge or appropriate them. Fiction that touches on these subjects is difficult to find, so keeping a copy in a library system is recommended. Still, the search for excellent fiction with Native American characters written by Native Americans should not end here. ( )

This was a great survival novel. I enjoyed the interplay of the characters, especially the Uncle. His efforts at communicating with the kids, who didn't speak his language were really good. The mix of adventure and character development was quite good.

I'd recommend this book to anyone who enjoys survival novels or novels about the north. ( )

This was a great adventure/survival story that fans of Hatchet should enjoy. ( )

Jan Lieberman (Children's Literature)
As Gabe and Raymond are in danger of freezing to death, Ray recalls his mother saying, "Life is the greatest gift," which gives the boys greater resolve to survive. Roommates at a boarding school in Yellowknife, the boys come from totally different cultures: Ray is a native from a remote Dene village in Canada while Gabe is a Texan. On an ill-fated flight, the boys must depend on each other when their plane goes down in a remote area of the Northwest Territory. With them is Johnny, an old man from Ray's village, who teaches them more survival skills before he dies, but finally it is the boys who must help each other. Grand scenic descriptions plus suspense and dramatic action make this a good story of friendship and survival. 1997 (orig. 1996), Morrow, $15.00 and $4.50 Ages 10 to 14.

Fifteen-year-old Texan Gabe Rogers decides to attend boarding school in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories so that he can be near his father, who is working at a diamond drilling project. When his roommate, Raymond Providence, a native from a remote Dene village, chooses to leave the boarding school and return home, Gabe is invited by his pilot buddy, Clint, to fly along. With them is Raymond's great-uncle, Johnny Raven, who has just been released from the hospital in Yellowknife and is also returning home to the village. Clint decides to take a detour up the Nahanni river to show his passengers the spectacular Virginia Falls, even though his radio is not functioning well enough to allow him to report his change in flight plans. When the engine dies after the plane lands on the river, everyone is nearly swept away by the strong current. The boys and Johnny Raven manage to get some supplies and themselves to the riverbank, but Clint is not so lucky. He and the plane are dragged over the falls. So begins a battle of survival for the wise elder and two resourceful teens, with the intense Arctic winter descending upon them. This classic Hobbs adventure, taking readers to a rugged, amazing wilderness few know. Characters are well drawn, and excitement and energy penetrate their entire trek from above Virginia Falls through the looming canyon of the almost-frozen Nahanni below. Smart and faulty choices are made the whole journey until the boys realize they must follow Johnny Raven's guidance if they are to make it back home. When Johnny Raven dies, the boys have learned so much from him they are able to continue their journey. Raymond is even able to recognize the spirit of the raven as their guide, reminiscent of Burr's cougar in Ardath Mayhar's Medicine Walk (Atheneum, 1985). Readers clamoring for more superior adventure like Gary Paulsen's Hatchet (Bradbury, 1987) will find their wish satisfied here. VOYA CODES: 5Q 4P M J S (Hard to imagine it being any better written; Broad general YA appeal; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12). 1996, Morrow, 226p., $15.00. Ages 11 to 18.

The first I ever heard of the Nahanni River and Deadmen Valley was from the bush pilot who met my flight at Forth Nelson, way up at the top of British Columbia.

The first thing you should know about the Northwest Territories is that it's big. It stretches from the Yukon practically to within spitting distance of Greenland. The N.W.T. Is twice as big as Alaska. … See if you can picture this: only sixty thousand people live in the entire N.W.T., and almost a third of them live in the city of Yellowknife.
